The final bachelor's and master's examinations before a committee are graded according to FHStG § 17 (2) in the following grading scale:

  • "mit ausgezeichnetem Erfolg bestanden" - Pass with distinction (in case of excellent performance)
  • "mit gutem Erfolg bestanden" - Pass with merit (in case of performance that is well above average)
  • "bestanden" - Pass (in case of positive assessment)
  • "nicht bestanden" - Fail (in case of negative assessment).

In applying this grading system, it has to be noted that the grades “Pass with merit” and “Pass with distinction” are reserved exclusively for an examination performance clearly exceeding the level of performance required to pass these final exams
