Questions about the certificate

What is the CASE Score?

The CASE Score compares degrees across universities and subject areas. It takes into account the relative position of your GPA in the local grade distribution as well as the competitiveness of your study programmes. The CASE Score is based on official grade distribution data as well as IQ and personality test results from over 340.000 students.

Where does our Data come from?

The CASE Score is based on (anonymised) grade distributions obtained directly from the universities. Naturally, all data protection regulations are fully complied with. Consequently, your CASE Score is not affected by how many certificates have already been issued for certain degree programmes at a university. These results are forgery-proof and are determined by means of real-time queries to our database.

As a further component, CASE Score uses IQ and personality test results from Germany 's largest study survey Fachkraft 2030 (in cooperation with Maastricht University and Jobvalley) with more than 340,000 students.

Your personal data will never be passed on to companies or other third parties without your prior consent!

What are the advantages of a CASE certificate?

You can use your CASE certificate for numerous purposes. The certificate helps you to better assess your final grade. You can see your academic performance in comparison with all students, both locally and nationally (depending on the certificate). For example, you will benefit particularly if your university evaluates you strictly and you study with strong fellow students.

You can also enclose the certificate with your application so that recruiters can assess your academic performance more objectively.

A good certificate improves your self-awareness, by evaluating your performance fairly and giving you an estimate of our potential. You can be a high-flyer even with a low GPA 😉

You can also be included in our talent pool, which means that you can receive special offers from companies or take part in exclusive events, for example.

Furthermore, you can publish it on job platforms such as LinkedIn or XING to make your profile more meaningful.

How does the free update work?

To update the information on your certificate, simply send us your premium certificate together with your updated GPA or your new degree (e.g. Master) to update@candidate-select.de. We will send you the updated certificate by email.

What do I need the CASE Score for?

There are over 28.000 universities and technical colleges worldwide. These differ in various ways, by how strict they grade and how they are rated. A degree awarded with an average GPA (in absolute terms) can be good or bad depending on the university it is from.

Here is a real example of grade distributions of two different study programs:

Distribution with a lot of low gradesDistribution with a lot of high grades

With a grade of 2.0 (German Grade System), in the case on top, one is among the top 10% of all students in Germany, relatively speaking, and in the case on the bottom, only among the top 96%. CASE combines this information with the competitiveness of a study programme.

Both elements together make the CASE Score a valid factor in your application. For more information on how companies use the CASE Score, please see our CASE Briefing.

What is the talent pool?

The talent pool connects you with attractive companies. You will have the opportunity to receive exclusive invitations to recruiting events or job interviews, tailored to your personal preferences.

If you provide us with some information about your job market preferences, we can send you even more targeted offers. Every day, we bring together many talents and companies and hope that we will soon be able to make you exciting offers too!

How do the certificates differ?

The Base Certificate helps you to better assess your own Bachelor's or Master's degree. It sets your personal GPA in relation to that of your direct peers. In this way you know exactly whether you are one of the best graduates in your subject at your university. You can have the Base Certificate issued for a total of three of your degrees.

The Standard Certificate is expanded to include the CASE subject score, which compares you with all students acrros universities within your field of study.

In addition to what is found on the other two certificates, the Premium Certificate also compares your degree with all other types of universty degrees, including ones awarded in other fields.

What do companies value about CASE?

Companies are always looking for ways to identify talent. Many recruiters know that the CASE Score is a good criterion for this. It makes hidden information from many years of study usable and shows a clear connection to the job performance of applicants. Our partner companies appreciate that they can reach you specifically through us and look forward to getting in touch with you!

How can I add my certificate to my LinkedIn profile?

  1. Post your certificate

    To post your certificate, go to your homepage and create a post. On LinkedIn you can upload your certificate via "share documents" as a PDF. You can get creative with your post, you should only include a link to the CASE website so that companies can validate the information. For example, you could post:

    Top X% - I have just received a CASE certificate and am one of the best X% of my year (direct comparison of grades - Base) / my subject (Subject Score - Standard) / of all students (CASE Score - Premium). CASE combines grade distributions with IQ and personality profiles in order to create a fair comparability between academic degrees. You can find out more and validate my score here: https://case-score.de/validate/.
  2. Highlight your certificate on LinkedIn

    Go to "add Profile Area" - featured on your profile. Here you can highlight your post or upload your certificate directly to your profile as a media file.
