Grading Scale


Grading system and Grading equivalence

In France, courses are evaluated on a scale of 20. 20 is the best result possible (very exceptional in France) while 0 is the worst result possible. 10 or more is generally required for a course or a semester to be validated.

Here are the equivalence tables beetween letter-based grades and French grading system.

For Engineering students: each teaching unit average must be above 10/20.

E ~100 SUFFICIENT - Performance meets the minimum criteria

Second Chance exams

If a course is not validated (Grade F) after completion of the semester, a second exam can be taken by the student approximately 1 or 2 months after the end of the course. In case of need, you may do the retake exam in your home university if the latter is open at this moment. If the second exam is a success, the course will be validated and the ECTS earned.
