The St Andrews grade scale

The University of St Andrews operates a 20-point common reporting scale. A grade is attached to a module and provides a numeric value between 0 and 20 (to one decimal place) to express the final outcome of a module. Find out more about grading at St Andrews.

Grades awarded to modules allow for comparisons to be made across the University. A particular grade can be viewed as representing the same standing of achievement at the same level of study in any subject.

For information about how St Andrews converts grades achieved at partner institutions by our own students, please see credit and grade conversions.

Non-graduating students are advised to discuss how St Andrews credits and grades are converted with their home institutions.
