Social Sciences - Certificates, Diplomas, Licenses, CVs / BA Final Examination Certificate
German term or phrase: mit den Leistungspunkten gewichtete Note
Context: "Die Gesamtnote setzt sich aus den mit den Leistungspunkten gewichteten Einzelnoten der Module und der mit den Leistungspunkten gewichteten Note für die Bachelorarbeit zusammen."

The overall mark is a product of ...?
Leistungspunkte = Credit Points
Bachelorarbeit = Bachelor's Thesis
Gewichtung = weighting

but I am not sure how to put it all together.

Thanks.

credit-weighted grade
Explanation:
Here are some examples (which are better than my explanation would be!)

http://www.purplemath.com/modules/howgrade2.htm
Another basic type of grading scheme is a weighted program, where the course grade is divided into component parts, each part being worth some percentage of the total grade.

http://www.nic.bc.ca/students/grades.htm
Grade Point Average (GPA)
1. For each course appearing on the transcript, the assigned grade point equivalent to the letter grade is multiplied by the credit value to obtain a weighted grade point value. 
2. These weighted grade points are summed. 
3. The credit value of each course is summed.
4. The sum of the weighted grade points is divided by the sum of the credit values to obtain the grade point average.
