Grading System & Graduation Requirements (EMS)

The ministry grades are calculated each term out of 100 and a final grade is calculated according to the average of both terms to get the final mark. Oral marks are related to class work grades, while activity grades are related to the projects, as well as the homework throughout the term. This ministry grading system is applied for all grade levels excluding Junior 6, Middle 3 and the Senior department, which all follow a different grading system.
