Obtaining a provisional average grade

Upon request, you can obtain a provisional average grade, which we will include in your Transcript of Records. 

In the following programs, your provisional average grade is calculated from the mean of all grades received for examinations/modules you have passed at the time of the request, weighted according to ECTS credits:

  • Programs at the Business School
  • Programs of the Department of Law
  • Programs of the Department of Economics
  • Programs at the School of Business Informatics and Mathematics
  • Master’s programs at the School of Humanities
  • Master’s programs at the School of Social Sciences

Please bear in mind that we can only calculate your average grade if you have collected 30 ECTS credits or more in your program of studies.

Please also note that different calculation methods apply to the following programs, reflecting the generally more complicated calculation methods used to determine the final grade in these programs:

  • Bachelor’s programs at the School of Humanities and the School of Social Sciences

    30-109 ECTS credits: average of all grades received for examinations completed in your major or core subject, weighted according to ECTS credits

    110 ECTS credits or more: average calculated on the basis of the calculation method used for the final grade (module A x percent, module B x percent...)

  • Bachelor's programs in Culture and Economy

    30-109 ECTS credits: average of all grades received for examinations completed in your major and your combination major, weighted according to ECTS credits

    110 ECTS credits or more: average calculated on the basis of the calculation method used for the final grade (module A x percent, module B x percent...)

  • Bachelor of Education programs (B.Ed.)

    24-109 ECTS credits: average of all grades received for examinations, weighted according to ECTS credits

    110 ECTS credits or more: average calculated on the basis of the calculation method used for the final grade (module A x percent, module B x percent...)

  • Integrated program in Law

    Grades for examinations are weighted according to annex 1 of the SPUMA.
