Brazil Grading System - Academic Grading in Brazil

There is no standardized grading system used in all Brazilian schools, universities, colleges, or institutions. Many use percentages from 0% to 100% or a scale system from 0-10 scale (with 0 being the lowest and 10 being the highest); others may use letter scales, similar to those found in the United States. 
Grading scales may vary within each institution. Variance occurs with respect to the grade point average essential for graduation.
