The ECTS Grading Tables based on module grades are frequency tables which provide information on the distribution of module grades within a certain reference group. Such grade distribution tables can be used, for example, when converting foreign module grades into the German grading system.

The conversion method using ECTS Grading Tables is described in the ECTS Users' Guide 2015 (see Examples for grade conversion, pp. 80 - 81). The requirement is that both educational institutions - sending and receiving ones - should hand in a comparable grade distribution table.

In the following, we summarize the basic information on the ECTS Grading Tables generated at HU Berlin.

  1. Reference groups will be defined according to the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED-F 2013). Therefore, a reference group (ISCED field of education) may include one or more subjects of HU Berlin.
  2. Only passed module grades from 1,0 to 4,0 will be recorded. The grading tables for Bachelor's and Master's programmes will be issued separately.
  3. The ECTS Grading Tables of HU Berlin will record the data of three calendar years each and will be updated annually. If a reference group is not large enough, i.e. the database contains less than 50 passed grades in the reference period, the corresponding line in the table will be marked accordingly.
  4. The ECTS Grading Tables based on module grades are primarily designed for the crediting of modules and can be used by
  • HU students who are planning to transfer to a university abroad
  • HU students who intend to apply for or have applied for credit for modules completed during their studies abroad. (A comparable ECTS grading table of the foreign university is required!)
  • exchange students (no degree) who spend their semester abroad studying at HU Berlin
  • the examination boards and the student advisors of HU Berlin.
