Stockholm University uses the Bologna model for grades and credits.

A seven-point grading scale (A-F) is used. In order to pass the course or a course unit, the grade E or higher is required. The grades Fx and F are failing grades. There are some formal exams where the grade scale used is Pass (G) or Fail (U). Information on grading scales is included in the syllabus for each course.

Some courses have more than one course unit. In order to pass the course, the grade E or higher is required on all course units.

Students who receive a grade E or higher on an exam cannot re-take the exam to obtain a higher grade.
