Swiss Batchelor Degrees.. how are they graded ?

I only know the UK system for grading Batchelor degrees... i.e.
First / 2.1 / 2.2 / Third / Fail

Anyone know the equivalent awards from a Swiss Uni ?

Generally I think you just get an average of all your grades, weighted by the credit point value of each course.
The grades go from 1 to 6, where 6 is the best, 4 is a pass, and anything below 4 is a fail.

You missed out 'Pass'. the numbered ones refer to the class of honours awarded, a Pass is like a non-honours degree.

Average but not weighted.

Re: Swiss Batchelor Degrees.. how are they graded ?

Shorrick is right, you either pass (4 to 6) or fail (below 4) and if you pass you have your Batchelors and that's it. To get on a Masters course you would probably have to do a bit more than just scrape through (depending on subject). Nowadays one generally needs some kind of post-Batchelors qualification eg Masters or other and in the future that is probably more likely to be the case. From my experience people here (including the cantonal authorities) don't make a difference between where you have studied, so your Oxbridge degree doesn't impress them any more than your degree from any other UK university and your grade doesn't seem to make any difference either. I suppose this could change in the future.
