Grade Conversion Formula for Grades Earned Outside Germany

This grade conversion formula, together with your degree program’s "Fachprüfungs- und Studienordnung" (FPSO),  is a tool to help your convert grades earned in countries other than Germany. Converted grades are calculated using the “modified Bavarian formula”, as follows:

Highest possible grade minus grade earned, divided by the highest possible grade

minus lowest possible grade,

multiply the result by 3, and add 1
