Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

For students with post undergraduate credits earned at more than one institution, a separate GPA is calculated for each institution.
