Credits linked to a teaching unit (course, module) are awarded only if the student obtains a pass at the evaluation of the unit (examination, written assignement, continuous assessment, etc.).
Grading scheme from 0 to 6.
6 is the highest grade and 4 the minimum pass mark.

|0||Absence without good cause, cheating or attempt to cheat|
A transcript is sent to the home university, mentioning the credits and grades earned by the exchange student. The transcript is sent within four weeks after the end of the examination session.

It is based on the distribution of grades within the participating institutions, and thus follows the recommendations of the 2015 ECTS User's Guide.

Otherwise, please refer to the distribution of awarded grades at UNIL overall or by ISCED discipline to facilitate the grade conversion.
