Schools and universities in Vietnam use a 10-point grading scale, with 10 being the highest and 0 being the lowest. Often, 5 is the lowest passing grade.

The grading may vary from school to school. It depends on the difficulty of each.

There are usually seven levels in the classification of a Vietnamese GPA.

Point Standing Grade
9.0–10.0 Excellent A+
8.0-8.9 Very Good A
7.0-7.9 Good B
6.0-6.9 Above Average C
5.0-5.9 Average D
4.0-4.9 Below Average E
0-3.9 Failing F

The distribution of grades differs from standards in western countries and strongly depends on the university. In Vietnamese universities, a ten or nine is near impossible. Students hardly get more than 8.0 for the final results. In general, all public universities gave Cs to the majority of students who could pass their examinations.
