German to English translations [PRO]
Law/Patents - Law (general) / from a CV
German term or phrase: Punkte
"mündliche Prüfung in Europarecht und internationalem Recht mit 28 Punkten"

Is there any simple, short way to explain what these points (marks?) are and what the result here is equivalent to? This is for a CV.

items


Explanation:
Just an idea: Maybe these "Punkte" are meant to be items or subjects or questions - comparable to a psychometric test questionnaire - not the result (score)??
