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. To measure the latter, CASE uses IQ and personality test results from over 300.000 students.
What are the advantages of a CASE certificate for me?
With a CASE certificate you can prove how good your degree really is. You benefit from this particularly if, for example, your university is assessed strictly and you study among competitive peers.
You can also use your certificate to enrich your application and to leave a positive impression on HR managers who know the importance of a good CASE score.
All certificates are provided in German and English..
A good certificate strengthens your self-confidence, because we evaluate your performance fairly and you can finally show what you have achieved. You can be a high-flyer even with a low GPA 😉
We recommend that you post your certificate on job networks in order to make your profile more meaningful.
Ultimately, you will become part of our talent pool and have the chance of interviews and events with well-known companies.

How does the free update work?
To get a new certificate, simply send us your premium certificate together with your updated GPA or your new degree (e.g. Master) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Wir will send you the new certificate by email.
Why is the CASE score necessary?
Globally there are over 28,000 universities and technical colleges, which are rated very differently. A degree with an - in absolute terms - average GPA can therefore be very good or poor.
Here is an example of an - in absolute terms - average GPA and its placement in the respective grade distribution of two real study programmes:
For more information, please have a look at our CASE Briefing.
What is the talent pool?
The talent pool connects strong students and graduates with attractive companies. The idea is to shorten the application process and to get into contact more easily, for example by getting invited to exclusive recruiting events.
After receiving the certificate, we will be happy to call you. Please also send us your résumé and tell us your interests.
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 find it difficult to identify talent because there is a lack of professional experience and grades say little about an applicant's competence.
Many recruiters know that the CASE Score is different. It makes hidden information from many years of study usable and shows a clear connection to the job later performance of an applicant.
We can prove this connection with various studies. At Evonik Industries and Simon-Kucher & Partners, applicants with a good CASE Score have a better chance of getting a job offer. A study with MAHLE shows that the likelihood of the company being very satisfied with a trainee depends on the CASE Score.
So if you have a good CASE Score, HR managers will notice you and you will stand out from your competition.
How can I add my certificate to my XING / Linkedin profile?
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 and on XING you can add your certificate as an image to your post. 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/.
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.
