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.

* C2, D1 or D2 grades are considered successful on the condition that the student has not taken any F1, F2, F3 or K grades in the same semester. Students, whose C2, D1 or D2 grades have thus been accepted as pass grades are permitted to repeat the same course in order to increase their grades, in which case it is the latest grade that will be counted.
