A 10% Excellent
B 25% Very Good
C 30% Good
D 25% Satisfactory
E 10% Adequate/Sufficient
F Unsatisfactory failed
 
Châtenay Campus / Centrale Paris
The grading system at CentraleSupélec campus of Châtenay can be summarized as follows: all activities of the curriculum are assessed, either by a grade or by a « pass / fail » designation. When grades are given, it is on a scale of 0 to 20 and yet, most grades are given between 6 and 16. It is generally considered impossible to establish a direct equivalence with any other foreign system.
Academic requirements (how to read the transcript): The minimum mark required to validate a course or project is 10/20. Any mark below 7/20 is a fail (called “insuffisance”). Any mark greater or equal to 7/20 and less than 10/20 is termed “tolérance ”. Four tolérances or more during a year of study also generate a fail (or “insuffisance ”).
To validate a semester, students must have an overall average greater or equal to 10/20 and no fails (or “insuffisance ”) in any courses. If these two conditions are met, the 30 ECTS credits of a completed semester are automatically given, regardless of the number of ECTS credits indicated on the transcript.
 
Grades are attributed according to the following rules:
Grade (0/20) - (letter) or rank
>= 16 - A+, < = best 5%, Passing grade
>= 15 - A, < = best 10%, Passing grade
>= 14 - A, < = best 20%, Passing grade
>= 13 - A-, < = best 30%, Passing grade
>= 12 - B+, < = best 40%, Passing grade
>= 11 - B, < = best 50%, Passing grade
>= 10 - B-, < = best 60%, Passing grade
>= 9 - C+, < = best 70%, Passing but unsatisfactory
>= 8 - C, < = best 80%, Passing but unsatisfactory
>= 7 - C-, < = best 90%, Passing but unsatisfactory
< 7 - F -, Failing grade
 
The GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated according to the following rules : A+ = 4.33; A = 4.00; A- = 3.67; B+ = 3.33; B = 3.0; B- = 2.67; C+ = 2.33; C = 2.0; C- = 1.67.
