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).
