1. Grading System
Courses introduced in or after the 2017 academic year use the "(1) From 2017" grading system and courses introduced prior to the 2017 academic year use the "(2) Prior to 2017" grading system shown below.
However, the Law School has its own grading system, described in "(3) Law School" below, which is not based on the year the course is introduced. At the Law School, if the date on which the student has his/her name removed from the university register is April 1, 2017 or after, his/her grades follow the new grade system, and if the date is prior to April 1, 2017, his/her grades follow the old grade system.
