Grade Conversion using the Bavarian Formula

This grade conversion formula, together with your degree program’s Academic and Examination Regulations (FPSO), is a tool to help your convert grades earned in countries other than Germany. Please note that this tool is only intended to provide a first orientation and the results are in no way binding.

Converted grades are calculated using the “modified Bavarian formula”, as stipulated by the resolution of the Kultusministerkonferenz (German PDF, 0,1MB)

Grade Conversion Tool

Enter the maximum grade, the minimum passing grade, and your current overall grade in the grading system of your university. The result is the equivalent to your grade in the German grading system, where 1.0 is the maximum grade and 4.0 the minimum passing grade.

Please note: Internationally, grading systems used at institutions of higher educations may differ substantially. The result given here is non-binding, as this grade converter can only provide a general first estimation.
