Marks in secondary and higher education
Secondary and higher education institutions use a grading system with a scale from 0 to 20.00. A mark of 10.00 or higher is a pass.
The weight of a subject is mentioned on the final examination list. Marks rarely exceed 18.00.
|16:00-17.99||très bien||very good|
|12.00-13.99||assez bien||quite satisfactory|
European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS)
Since the implementation of the LMD system (Licence – Master – Doctorat), some Algerian higher education institutions use the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) for their degree programmes. The ECTS system is based on 60 credits for each year of study.
The standard requirements are:
- 180 credits for a bachelor’s programme (licence);
- 120 credits for a master’s programme (master).
You can find more information about the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) in the ECTS Users’ Guide, published by the European Commission.
