Grading system

Obtaining credits for a subject or course implies having passed the corresponding exams and is expressed as a numerical grading in the student’s academic file together with the percentage distribution of these marks of all the students enrolled in the same course for each academic year.

The grades obtained by the students are expressed according to the following numerical scale from 0 to 10, to which the corresponding qualitative grades may be added:

From 0 to 4.9: Fail (SS)
From 5.0 to 6.9: Pass (AP)
From 7.0 to 8.9: Pass with Merit (NT)
From 9.0 to 10: Pass with Distinction (SB)

The “Honor Registration” (Matrícula de Honor), may be obtained when the student has achieved a mark equal to or greater than 9, and the number of “Honor Registration”  may not exceed five percent of the students enrolled in the course or subject in a single academic year, except when the number of students is less than 20, in which case no more than one “Honor Registration”  may be awarded

The credits obtained in recognition of extracurricular activities will not be graded numerically or taken into account for the average of the student’s academic file.

The following formula is used to calculate the average of the student’s academic file:
The sum of the credits obtained by the student, each multiplied by the value of the corresponding marks, divided by the total number of credits obtained by the student.
