How does the Dutch grading and credit system work?


The Dutch grading system scale ranges from 1 to 10:

8.5 - 10          excellent        
7.5 - 8.4 good
6.5 - 7.4 satisfactory
5.5 - 6.4 sufficient
1.0 - 5.4 fail

Note: The grades 1-3 are hardly ever awarded and 9 and 10 are very rare. 


Most courses at RSM are worth 3, 6 or 12 EC (European Credits). One credit point represents 25 to 30 hours of study. The workload includes time spent attending lectures or seminars, independent study time, and preparation for and completion of exams. 

To complete a full-time programme, students must complete 60 credits per academic year (30 credits per semester).
