The grading system varies from country to country and sometimes even from university to university. After your exams abroad, you will receive a Transcript of Records with your marks and more information about their grading system. Afterwards, the International Office converts your grades and enters them into Oasis. If you have passed at the host institution, you have also passed at UGent. Some countries have a higher "grading culture" than UGent. This means that the highest score at the host institution does not necessarily correspond to the highest score at UGent. The grading distribution is taken into account during the conversion. The conversion table is published on the website. The conversion can be modified on the basis of new information that we receive. The grades obtained at the host institution are converted and entered into Oasis in the course of April (for students who have been on exchange in semester 1) or later, if the transcript is only available later.
