When you have finished the A, B, C or D course you will get a grade. Your teacher sets the grade when you have reached the specific goals and is finished with the course. The grading system is E (Passed), D, C, B and A (excellent). If you do not pass all the goals for the course you can get a certificate which tells what goals you have achieved.
As a support for the teacher’s grading, there are national tests done on the B, C and D-levels. National Exams are made continuously.
