Universidad de Deusto

Spanish university grading system

In the Spanish university system, students receive a mark for each subject on a scale of 0 to 10 with one decimal place. Each numerical grade corresponds to a descriptor as follows:

 

Suspenso: 0-4.9; Aprobado: 5-6.9; Notable: 7-8.9; Sobresaliente: 9-10; Matrícula de Honor is a grade of Sobresaliente plus a special mention.

 

The minimum pass mark for a subject is 5.(RD 1125 / 2003, BOE (Official Spanish Gazette) of 9/18/2003).

Note: “No presentado” means Not taken or Not Shown. The subject is therefore not passed.

 

Grade point average shown on the academic record

Depending on the year the degree programme is completed, the grade point average shown on the academic record and on the European Diploma Supplement is calculated according to one of the two systems:

 

On a scale of 0 to 10 (RD 1125/2003, BOE (Official Spanish Gazette) of 9/18/2003. A minimum grade of 5 is required to pass. Suspenso: 0-4.9.Aprobado: 5-6,9; Notable: 7- 8,9; Sobresaliente: 9-10; Matrícula de Honor: Sobresaliente plus special mention.

 

On a scale of 1 to 4 (RD 1267/1994, BOE (Official Spanish Gazette) of 6/11/1994). A minimum grade of 1 point is required to pass.Aprobado: 1 point, Notable: 2 points, Sobresaliente: 3 points, Matrícula de Honor: 4 points.

 

In both cases, the grade point average is the weighted average of the marks based on credits and is calculated as follows: The credits assigned to each subject are multiplied by the mark obtained. These amounts are added up and the sum is divided by the total number of credits.
