For each course taken at IUE, the student is given one of the letter grades below by the instructor as the semester course grade.
The table below provides the detailed information about the local letter grades and coefficients.
Score Grades Coefficients
90-100 AA 4,00
85-89 B1 3,50
80-84 B2 3,25
75-79 B3 3,00
70-74 C1 2,75
65-69 C2 2,50
60-64 C3 2,00
50-59 F1 1,50
49 and below F2 0,00
The lowest grade to be successful in a course is (C3) 2,00. The grades lover than 2,00 (F1 and F2) are unsuccessful.
In order to be successful in a program, grade point average must be at least (C3) 2.00 and all courses must be completed successfully.
Ghent University is fully committed to the correct
and objective conversion of grades obtained abroad.
From the very beginning it has applied the old ECTS grading
scale based on statistical distribution tables for
all its students.
Gent is also the coördinator of the EGRACONS projec
t (www.egracons.eu), which aims at developing a European conversion tool. Depending on the faculty and programme, grades at UGent vary between 10 (pass mark) and 20.
The average grade is either 13 (Bachelor) or 14 (Ma
ster) and 19 and 20 are almost never given (less than 1%).
Even 18 is rare. On the transcript of records for each course unit, the percentage of students that obtain the same
grade for the reference group is given, as well as
the percentages of students who obtain a lower grade and those that obtain a higher grade. This corresponds to a condensed distribution table. The correct conversion
of grades from Gent (for incoming students) depends on the availability of grading tables at the home university
for the reference group that the student belongs to
