Codes and comments on the transcript of records


Besides your score ('local grade') there is also a code on your transcript of records that indicates if you achieved whether or not a credit certificate or if you were tolerated plus the concerning academic year. In this code you can also see if it is about the first or resit exam period.

  • C = Credit certificate awarded (for example C141 means that in academic year 2014-2015 a credit certificate was awarded at the first exam period)
  • G = Tolerated fail, no credit certificate awarded.
    This means that your score was less than 10/20, but this fail was tolerated and that you succeed for the deliberation packet. You do not have a resit exam for course units with a G code, but you will not get a credit certificate and you will not get back learning account.
    You are allowed to do a resit exam in August/September if you want to achieve a credit certificate.
    Contact your Faculty Student Administration if you want to do so.
  • PASS = Pass (no score on 20)
  • FAIL = Fail
  • ZIEK = Absent because of illness
  • AFWE = Absent
  • BDRG = Fraud
  • ONBK = Local grade unknown
  • VRST = Exemption
  • STOP = Terminated enrolment


Under 'Percentile' A(B)C you can see the fraction of passed students achieving a grade in relation to your score.

  • A: strictly lower than yours
  • B: equal to yours
  • C: strictly higher than yours
