Grading System

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

Examinations, final examinations and final arts projects are assessed by marks from 1 to 10. The minimum 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 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).

Grading distribution: the statistical distribution is based on LMTA grades given over the previous two years in the study programmes of the study field of Arts and Humanities (ISCED code 02). Grading distribution for the academic year 2017–2018 will be published in Autumn 2018.
