Calculation of final mark
The final mark is based on class marks and internal exam marks obtained throughout the year (the preliminary mark) as well as marks obtained at the final written and oral examinations.
The final mark is a number between 0 and 100. 50 is a passing mark.
The preliminary mark is calculated from the two school reports published in the school year (February and May). It accounts for 50% of the overall mark.
The preliminary mark is an average mark of all subjects and is calculated from class marks (A1 and A2) as well as marks from the internal examinations (B1 and some B2 marks). The A-marks are weighed 40%, while the B-marks are weighed 60%.
Students receive A-marks in all subjects in the two school reports.
Students receive two B-marks in subjects with two exams placed in the school year. These includes complementary subjects and Physical Education as well as the 2p options in History, Biology, Geography and Philosophy. Students will sit those exams in November/December and May.
Students receive one B-mark in all other subjects (L1, L2, Math and 4p options). Students will be awarded these based on exams in January.
The calculation of the preliminary mark in each subject is thus different depending on whether it is a subject with two internal exams or a subject with one internal exam.
For instance, in History 2p the preliminary mark is calculated as
whereas the preliminary mark is calculated as
All exams during the school year are made by the subject groups and corrected by the subject teacher.
Students will sit five written and three oral exams in June. Each of the five written exams count for 7% towards the final mark (for a total of 35%), while each of the three oral exams counts for 5% (for a total of 15%).
The exams will therefore in total account for the other half of the students’ final mark.
