## Grading system

**GRADING SYSTEM **
As we know grading is an essential and sensitive part of the learning process. The European Credit transfer and

accumulation System (ECTS) is recently adopted in Tbilisi State Medical University. The ECTS is a student

centered system based on the student workload required to achieve the objectives of a program of study. The

ECTS is based on the principle that 60 credits corresponds to workload of a full-time student during one academic

year. The student workload of a full-time study program amounts to around 1500-1800 hours per year and one

credit stands on 30 working hours.

**GRADING DETAILS **
**GRADING SCALE **
**Excellent.** All components of study program are

performed thoroughly and meticulously. A student

expresses deep understanding of the subject, detailed

knowledge and outstanding ability of independent

judgment and conclusion making.

**Very good.** All demands of study program are

performed appropriately but with little deficiencies.

The student expresses good knowledge and ability of

independent judgment and conclusion making.

**Good. **Basic components of study program are

performed. The student expresses good knowledge of

the subject intended but makes slight deficiencies in

independent judgment.

**Medium.** Performance of all the basic components of

study program is satisfactory. Student expresses

medium knowledge of the subject intended, quite

confined in independent judgment (with substantial

misunderstandings).

**Satisfactory.** Performance of all the basic components

of study program is on minimum level. Student

expresses confined knowledge of the subject intended

but with substantial misunderstandings and

misjudgments.

**Unsatisfactory. **Performance of all the basic

components of study program is on minimum level.

Student can not express theoretical knowledge and

unavailable for independent judgment.

**Completely unsatisfactory. **In spite of permission on

the exam (11 points gained) student must cover all the

program intended. Considerable further work required.

The following scheme should be used for conversion of old grades into new ones for the students of II-VI years.

**OLD 5** **POINT GRADING SCALE**
**NEW** **100 POINT GRADING SCALE**
**GRADE POINT AVERAGE **
Quality points are assigned for each semester hour as listed above. In computation of the required grade point average (GPA) for retention and conferral of a degree, the total number of quality points is divided by the total number of semester hours for which letter grades are received.

**GPA = ΣGPxCR/ΣCR **where

* *
**GPA** is a grade point average;

**GP** – grade point for each study course

**CR **– credit for each study course.

A graduate student whose cumulative grade point average for courses taken at Tbilisi State Medical University falls below a 2.0 at the end of a term must cover due study program again.

**STUDY COURSE COMPONENTS **
Each study course is based upon appropriate syllabus. 100 points is a maximal rank and final grade of evaluation. The mentioned 100 points is allocated into the following fashion: 60 points prior to exams and the remaining 40 points on exams. There are several components of evaluation and each of them has its own value (see tables below).

**Components of evaluation for clinical subjects. **

**Components of evaluation for basic subjects. **
**COMPONENTS **
For obtaining permission to exams gaining 11 points as minimum is necessary (from 60)

There are two types of failure on exams;

**FX**-means that a student has gained 41-50% (from maximum exam 40 points=100%) and he/she has chance to

pass it on secondary exam (just one);
