ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) and Conversion Grade System
The use of ECTS is the only credit system which has been successfully tested and used across Europe, as it makes study programs and qualifications more transparent and facilitates the recognition of qualifications.
Universities that joined the ECTS system are required to use the new table of ECTS grades, based on the percentage distribution of grades. The ECTS scale, divided into 5 levels, was abolished and has been replaced by the ECTS labels.
