ECTS grading scale

AP uses a different grading scale than the ECTS grading scale. This means a grade conversion will take place.

AP grading system

AP uses a grading system of 0-20 points. 10 to 20 are the passing marks, 0 to 9 are failing marks.

Grade conversion

Grade conversion in ECTS is the translation of a grade obtained abroad (host grade) to the local grade scale of the student (home grade). ECTS grade conversion is mainly done in the context of student mobility such as in Erasmus+. It is often subjective process. It is always the responsibility of the home university to transfer grades obtained abroad to the final home grades mentioned on the home Transcript of Records (TOR)

ECTS Grading scale

In ECTS, 60 credits represent the workload of one year’s study or 30 credits for one full semester. Credits are awarded only when the course has been completed and all required examinations have been successfully taken.
