Dies ist eine Online-Petition of the European Parliament.


The petitioner denounces the refusal by the Spanish authorities to correct the equivalence tables for grades obtained in Italy by students wishing to study in Spain. The petitioner refers to a reply from the Spanish Ministry of Education, according to which students who obtain the highest Italian grading of ‘30 e lode’ cannot be awarded the corresponding Spanish grade of 10/10 ‘Matricula de Honor’, because it is allegedly easier for students to obtain the highest grade in Italy than it is in Spain. According to the petitioner, this approach is contrary to the principle of free movement of students within the European Higher Education Area and to the principles of equal opportunities, equality and non-discrimination among European citizens. Therefore, the petitioner asks the European Parliament to verify whether EU law is being infringed and to require the use of equivalence tables that ensure uniformity, objectivity and impartiality in the conversion of grades obtained in a Member State by European university students wishing to complete their studies in another EU State.
