Compared to the German rating system (according to which 1.0 is the best and 4.0 is the lowest grade), you should have an average of at least 2.5. All foreign grades will be evaluated according to this system. In order to give you an idea what your chances are to be admitted to the program the following rules of thumb can be applied:

  • In GPA-ratings (maximum grade 4.0, minimum grade to pass 2.0) you need at least an average of 3.3.
  • In percentage-ratings (100% maximum, minimum grade to pass 40%), you need at least 75%.
  • If your degree includes ratings like "first division", "first division with distinction" etc, you should have at least earned one of the two best ratings.
