If your home institution convert your awarded grade to another national system/standard, then below may be relevant.
The grading system used in all state-regulated education since August 2007 is the 7-point grading scale. The grading scale is compatible with the ECTS grading scale.

The student’s performance or proficiency is assessed according to academic targets set up for the specific subject or course (absolute grading method). The relative grading method must not be used. It is nevertheless expected that the overall distribution of grades over a certain period of time should reflect the following distribution of grades:
General Grade Distribution in Higher Education in Denmark and Zealand Distribution
