Explanation:
I essentialy agree with Brieuc, but, if this is not a Master's degree, it can lead to confusion, because "Master" has a very precise sense in Education. So, if you want something more general, I would go for something along the lines of "obtained a place among the experts of first class". It depends on the kind of diploma. If it is a Master's degree diploma, masters would be the best option.

"among masters" would probably be more idiomatic.

Rough translation of the original text:

"…examiners in the education of the natural sciences recommend the offering/presentation, (of) the position obtained among masters of the first class/grade/rank…"
