Grading System

The grading system as defined by the university regulations rests on points and their equivalents in grades and academic scores. Though the same system applies for both undergraduate and postgraduate studies, the passing grade is set differently, as shown in the following chart. In addition, the grading system does not attach qualitative labels (outstanding, excellent, very good, etc.) to the passing grades and their equivalents in scores.
