Danish 7-point grading scale

The Danish 7-point grading scale has been used in state-regulated education since August 2007. Therefore, the 00 to 13 grading scale is no longer in use. Here you will find an overview of the present 7-point grading scale and information about both the conversion of grades from the old 00 grading scale to the 7-point grading scale and the ECTS grading scale.

The minimum grade for passing an exam is 02. Apart from the Danish 7-point grading scale, pass/fail assessment may also be in use. 

Here you can find more information about the Ministry of Higher Education and Science's 7-point grading scale.
