The University grading system is between the scale of 0-10 (0% – 100%) and the pass (module) is 5 (50%). The grading system of the Universities can be well described as:
  • Excellent (Ἀριστα) (8.50 to 10)
  • Very Good (λίαν καλώς) (6.50 to 8.50)
  • Good (καλώς) (5 to 6.49)
  • No awards after the completion of fourth or fifth year, unless and until they can complete all the syllabus from the previous years successfully.

Grades are quite different for the National Technical University in Athens (polytehnio), they are:
  • Excellent : 9-10
  • Very good : 7-9
  • Good : 5-7
  • Fail : 0-4.9
Almost all the degrees that are offered are same as a BEng(Hons.) or BSc(Hons.) since the duration of these courses are around 4 - 5 years and are accredited professionally. Students should clear the module with 5.00 (50%) as a minimum grade in order to obtain a degree. Considering the overall credit-weighted average of all the syllabus that includes 'diplomatiki' (university/polytechnic) or 'ptichiaki' (TEI), ultimately the classification is made.
