The ECTS Grading Table
The Dutch grading system is used from elementary through to university education. The scale runs from 1 to 10 . The passing grades range from 6 (satisfactory) to 10 (outstanding). The grades 1 to 3 are hardly used; the grade 10 is rarely awarded.
Different study programmes tend to award grades in various ways. For instance: it may be easier for a student in study programme A to obtain an 8 than it is for a student in study programme B. In order to make the grades that are awarded in a specific degree programme more transparent, to better determine their actual value, and for mobile students to enable a fair conversion into local grades, the ECTS Grading Table has been introduced.
The grading table provides a statistical distribution of grades for a specific degree programme, calculated over the past three years. It indicates the percentage of students who gained the grades mentioned in the transcript of records and gives a clear indication of the student’s performance in relation to the current and the previous cohorts.
Example: see 4.4 of the Diploma Supplement
