ECTS classification tables
An ECTS grading table provides information on the distribution of the total grades achieved in a particular degree program at Clausthal University of Technology.
The ECTS classification tables are compiled on December 15 of each year for all Bachelor's and Master's graduates from November 1 of the previous year to October 31 of the current year. The date of the last examination is decisive for the allocation. In each case, the graduates of a degree program from the previous three academic years are used as the comparison group. Only those graduates can be considered in the comparison group whose examination results have been received in full by the examination office by 14 December at the latest. The online publication of the ECTS grading tables takes place promptly after their creation (usually within 2-3 working days).
- The ECTS classification tables will be created for the first time for Bachelor's or Master's graduates who obtained their degree in WS 14/15 or SS 15 (reference period of the comparison group: 01.11.2012 - 31.10.2015). It is not possible to create a classification for periods prior to this.
- The creation of an ECTS grading table is excluded if the number of graduates of a study program in the considered reference period is smaller than 30 (cf. § 21 para. 4 APO)! If you cannot retrieve an ECTS grading table for your degree program (graduates as of WS 14/15, see above), the reason will be a too low number of graduates in the respective reference period.
- In both cases, please refrain from making corresponding inquiries at the examination office!
The ECTS grading table replaces the relative "ECTS grade" A to E recommended by the EU in the context of the study reform. The ECTS grading tables of the TU Clausthal are created according to the ECTS Users' Guide.
