We require a ال ب كال وري وس (Bakalorius / bachelor’s degree) or ال ماج س ت ير (master's degree).
Grading systems vary according to institution. A percentage system is most commonly used, though some institutions in addition provide a letter grade and a GPA. A mark of 60% is the pass mark at most universities.
The grading system used at three universities is illustrated below.
