The Stockholm School of Economics changed its grading system in conjunction with the transformation to the Bologna Model in 2007.
The main components of the new ECTS grading system includes ECTS credits: 1.5 credits for one full week of studies equal to 60 credits for a full academic year, and five passing ECTS grades: A, B, C, D, E, and F for fail.
A Grade Point Average (GPA) is calculated for all passed courses with a letter grade (A – E) in the following way: for each course the letter grade is converted to a numeric value using A = 5.00, B = 4.00, C = 3.00, D = 2.00 and E = 1.00. Then the values are weighted by the ECTS credits for each course. This is done by multiplying the value by the ECTS credits for each course and then calculating the sum of the products. This sum is then divided by the sum of the ECTS credits to give the GPA as shown in the formula below:
The GPA for a student can range from 1.00 - 5.00, with 5.00 being the highest. The GPA also includes any complementary courses taken beyond the degree requirement.
To access the grade performance of an SSE student, one can compare his/her letter grades and individual GPA to the Class GPA of all courses offered to the whole cohort, and to the distribution of grades of all courses offered during the entirety of the program (see below).
