ECTS scale is a grading system designed to facilitate the transfer of academic results (expressed in terms of grades) between different national assessment systems. It is adopted by institutions in the countries belonging to the European Higher Education Area, allowing the conversion of the grades from one country into grades used in another country, following common European rules.

Description of the institutional grading system (subject to variation):

  • Grades up to 30 cum laude  - minimum passing grade: 18  (subjects with assessment upon exam)
  • Pass/fail (subjects with assessment upon teacher's opinion)

The various national assessment systems are related to each other through the ECTS scale, a unique system that compares the statistical distribution of grades in the different systems. The ECTS scale is based on the results obtained by a uniform group of students in a given period of time, according to the following rule:
