Twice a year, all HSE students have the opportunity to see how they rank among their classmates.
The ranking is a list of students demonstrating achievements in subjects from the curriculum over a certain period.
HSE distinguishes between current and cumulative rankings. We also compile rankings before repeated exams and after repeated exams.
- Current ranking – allows student achievements to be compared over half a year (two study modules or one semester). The current ranking is an interim indicator of a student’s achievements and is renewed each time and includes results in subjects from the last half year (there are usually 5-8 results).
- Cumulative ranking – compares students’ achievements over the entire period of studies at HSE. Twice a year, new subjects are added to the cumulative ranking, in addition to all subjects taken by the student since the first year of study. Before graduation, a student’s cumulative ranking will include results in all elements of the curriculum: subjects, term papers, projects etc. (there are at least 30 results in undergraduate programmes, and at least 12 in Master’s programmes).
- Ranking before repeated exams (both current and cumulative) – takes into account students’ grades as they were given during the exam period in a given period. For those students who miss the exam or receive unsatisfactory grades, the relevant elements of the curriculum are graded as zero.
- Ranking after repeated exams – takes into account the grades received on repeated exams.
The ranking tables are prepared after the summer and winter examination periods, as well as after the repeated exam periods.
Students are informed of different types of rankings during the academic year within the following timeframes:
Current ranking before repeated exams for the 1st semester – January 20;
Current ranking after repeated exams for the 1st semester – March 10;
Current ranking before repeated exams for the 2nd semester – July 20;
Current ranking after repeated exams for the 2nd semester – October 25;
Cumulative ranking – March 10 and October 25.
