- Notes for Norway
Most universities in Norway have adopted a grading scale that is similar – but not fully equivalent – to the ECTS grading scale. Marks are awarded in Norwegian programs by qualitative evaluation of each student, rather than quantitative assessment of students in relation to their cohort. Average grade distributions, as of 2018, nevertheless aligned closely with ECTS standards.
Applicants with 180-credit ECTS degrees can be considered for non-standard admission on a case-by-case basis.
