Do you use ECTS grading?

Ense3 uses ECTS grading (European Credit Transfer System). ECTS was developed by the European Commission as a means of facilitating academic recognition and the transfer of credits from one university institution to another using a common basis of measurement.

Each examination is based on a scale from 0 to 20 points (maximum). The average required to validate the semester or the academic year is 12/20.
In this credit system, the convention is that one standard academic year corresponds to 60 credits. It will serve as a valuable guide-line for potential visiting students. However, they may very well consider, in agreement with their academic advisor in their home university, taking less than 60 credits or less than 30 credits for one semester to compensate for the difficulties related with the difference in language, teaching methods, scientific level...
ECTS marks: A, B, C, D, E, F, FX
Grades are given to students, with a pass grade, as follows:

  ECTS Grade
 % of students*
 A 10EXCELLENT - outstanding performance with only minor errors
 B 25VERY GOOD - above the average standard but with some errors
 C 30GOOD - generally sound work with a number of notable errors
 D 25SATISFACTORY - fair but with significant shortcomings
 E 10SUFFICIENT - performance meets the minimum criteria
 Fx -FAIL - some more work required before the credit can be awarded
 F - FAIL - considerable work is required
* Percentage of successful students who should get that mark
