Final Grades Ranking

Together with their degree documents, students receive an overview of the final grades ranking in percentiles. Individual ranks are not published.

Calculation

The final degree is assigned a weighted overall grade. Graded modules are weighted according to their number of ECTS credits in the calculation of the major and minor degree grades. Major and minor degree grades are weighted according to their fixed ECTS credit values (150, 120, 90, 60, or 30 ECTS credits) in the calculation of the weighted overall grade. Both the major and minor degree grades and the weighted overall grade are calculated as unrounded point values. The results are rounded to one decimal place.

For particularly good degrees, the following distinctions are awarded on the basis of the weighted overall grade:

  • 5.5 and higher: summa cum laude
  • 5.0 and higher: magna cum laude
