Italian term or phrase: 30/L
This phrase appears a couple of times under the column for "voto" in a transcript of grades for classes taken for a Chemistry degree. The columns read "Anno", "Esito","Voto" and "crediti". I realise that 30 is the mark, but I don't know what the "L" stands for. The only word I can think of is "Laurea" and wonder if the "L" refers to this, or if not, I have no idea what it could refer to. The row reads

Insegnamento Anno Esito Voto
CHIMICA 1 Superato 30/L

Which I have translated as:

Subject Year Result Mark
CHEMISTRY 1 Passed 30/L
