Studies
 

LMTA uses two systems for evaluating students’ work: ten-point-scale and pass/fail. Courses that do not end with examinations are assessed using pass/fail system: “įskaityta” (passed) and “neįskaityta” (not passed).

Examinations, final examinations and final art projects are assessed by marks from 1 to 10. The minimal passing grade is 5 (sufficient).

  • Pass - 10 (excellent: excellent performance, outstanding knowledge and skills), 9 (very good: strong performance, good knowledge and skills), 8 (good: above the average performance, knowledge and skills), 7 (highly satisfactory: average performance, knowledge and skills with unessential shortcomings), 6 (satisfactory: below average performance, knowledge and skills with substantial shortcomings), 5 (sufficient: knowledge and skills meet minimum criteria).
  • Fail - 4, 3, 2, and 1 (knowledge and skills do not meet minimum criteria/below minimum criteria and are insufficient).
