Grading system

Grading system ranges from to 20
Pass mark: 10

ISEP applies the European ECTS grading system

The ECTS grading scale is based on a statistical distribution curve. For a given course, letter grades are distributed among students as follows:

A best 10% (outstanding)

B next 25% (very good)

C next 30% (good)

D next 25% (satisfactory)

E next 10% (sufficient)

F fail

If the number of students does not allow the statistical processing, the following table is used:

 ECTS Standard  ISEP gradingsystem
 A  [16 – 20]
 B  [14 – 16[
 C  [12 – 14[
 D  ]10 – 12[
 E  10
 F  < 10
