Once completed, the module of transferable skills is marked with a passing grade. The module of discipline-specific studies is accepted either with a passing grade or graded on the scale of 0–5, depending on your doctoral programme's grading scale. Information on the grading scale used in your doctoral programme can be found in the programme’s course catalogue in Sisu.
If a course is graded on the scale of 0–5, the grade of the module is based on the grades of the courses included in it, with each course weighted in accordance with the number of credits it provides. When calculating the grade, only the courses graded on the scale of 0–5 will be taken into account. If more than half the number of credits included in the module have not been graded on the scale of 0–5, no module grade will be given.
Module grades are calculated to two decimal places and rounded off as follows:
- 5 (excellent) = average of 5.00–4.50
- 4 (very good) = average of 4.49–3.50
- 3 (good) = average of 3.49–2.50
- 2 (satisfactory) = average of 2.49–1.50
- 1 (passable) = average of 1.49–1.00
