How to get into university in Sweden

15 sep 2023
Hello! I was an International Baccalaureate (IBDP) student for IEGS. I gave exams in May 2023 with subjects: Fysik 2, Kemi 2, Matte 4, Engelska 7, Historia 2 och Svenska 1. My results showed all passing grades in my five of six subjects other than Fysik 2 which is why I did not receive an IB Diploma. Earlier when I spoke to antagning.se they rightfully told me that since I donot have the IBDP Diploma, I donot fulfill the ”General Entry Requirements” but with my merits in my chosen subjects, I do fulfill Special/ Särskilda Requirements. In this specific condition, what do you think will happen to me? What options do i have right now? Other than trying and retake..

Will I never be able to get into a uni here in Sweden or is there any way out since I have good subjects which can geg me into good programs keeping in view Chemistry, Maths and English. Keeping in mind I am doing SVA3 course too.

Is there any way out for me to fulfill the ”General Entry Requirements”?

Please help me since im utterly worried and see no way out. I hope you understood my question and points and help me accordingly. Thank you.

Best regards,

You always have to fulfil both general and special requirements when you apply to university. I don't know though why you don't receive an IB Diploma just because of Fysik 2. Please talk to your IB-school about that and continue on with the retakes if you can.

The general requirements is Maths 1 and English 6 which i am guessing you have. For the Swedish requirements you can take the Tisus test or do SVA3.

Good luck with your future studies! /Petra
