At the POWIŚLAŃSKI COLLEGE IN KWIDZYN, the grading scale is from 2 to 5.5, and grades will be converted into ECTS credits as follows:

ECTS GRADE                                 DEFINITION PSW                                                              GRADE

A      EXCELLENT – excellent achievements (results) including only minor errors         5,5         

B       VERY GOOD – above an average standard, with some errors.                     5 and 4,5            

C       GOOD – generally good work with a number of noticeable errors.                    4            

D       SATISFACTORY – satisfactory, but with many (important) errors.                          3,5         

E        PASSABLE – work (result) meeting minimum criteria.                                               3            

FX      INSUFFICIENT – credits may be granted if a student completes
main gaps in material.                                                                                                          2            

F        INSUFFICIENT – credits may be granted if a student repeats
the whole material.                                                                                                               2            

The ECTS grading scale combines key words, i.e. "good" and "excellent" with figures, which makes them more transparent. The number of ECTS grades is a result of a compromise. If there were less grades, they would reflect too few information. Whereas, a bigger number of grades would mean be equal to the level of accuracy which practically does not exist, and the allocation of such grades would require more mechanical work.
