This can vary even within a country.

In England I think it is generally necessary to get 70% to get a first class
degree. However, the Open University requires 85%. However the pass mark is
the same for both, 40%.

The trouble with sharing percentages is that it doesn't tell you much about
the actual requirements in terms of difficulty, depth and so on.
