The Danish grading system

The grading system in Denmark applies to all educational institutions. The seven-point scale allows you to easily convert your Danish grades to ECTS credits according to the EU’s European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System

Below you find a view of the Danish seven-point scale:

In some cases, a simple pass or fail can be given instead of grades. Your performance will be assessed according to academic targets set for the specific subject or course.  For further information about grading, please visit the Ministry of Education - Order on the Grading Scale and Other Forms of Assessment (primary and secondary school, short to medium-cycle higher education) and Ministry of Science - Order on the Grading Scale and Other Forms of Assessment (university education).
