Cumulative average of the maximum grade
The term cumulative average grade is synonymous with cumulative grade point average (CGPA).
In order to be eligible for Master's programmes at Chalmers applicants are generally required to have attained at least a 70% cumulative average of the
maximum grade during their Bachelor's studies. Exemptions from this
requirement may be granted in exceptional cases when a combination of
other elements of the application (i.e. a high average grade in courses
that are required or recommended by the Master's programme applied for,
CV, letter of motivation, letters of recommendation, international
ranking of their home University, relevant internship/work experience,
etc.) are perceived to be sufficiently extraordinary to compensate for a
lower cumulative average grade than the 70% minimum.
If the cumulative average grade is not
provided as a percentage on an official University document a conversion
into percentage will be made by Chalmers.
Please note that fulfillment of the minimum
grade requirement does not necessarily guarantee that you will be
admitted, as admission to Chalmers is subject to place availability and
the general overall strength of your application, in addition to
fulfilling other entry requirements.
