The grading system: tests and exams

The Russian grading system at university level comprises two types of assessment:

Exam: the type of assessment which only takes place during examination periods (“sessions”).

Zachet: Regular tests which take place during the semester and are based on your continuous evaluation throughout a course.

The fi nal grade on ZACHET depends on 3 rating papers (“srez”) during the semester.

Final Grade = (Rating1 + Rating2 + Rating3) / 3

If Final Grade is over 70, that means you have secured your credit for a particular course.

If you have any questions about your grades you can consult the Division of the Quality of Education within the Department of Studies and Organizational work.
