Admission score at upper secondary school

Admission score: How it works

When you apply to an upper secondary school and an upper secondary school programme, you do it based on your grades from secondary school. You need to be qualified to apply for a national or a specially designed upper secondary program, which means that you need to have a passable grade in Swedish or Swedish as a second language, mathematics and English.

The highest possible score is 340, which would mean you have received A as a grade in all subjects. If you have 17 or 18 final grades, you get to strike one or two of your lowest grades. If you have taken a modern language class, you are only supposed to disregard one grade, and thereby have a merit rating based on 17 subjects. If you have chosen to take one of the other languages, the merit rating works the same as before, and your maximum score will amount to 320 points and 16 subjects in total.

When applying to the Aesthetic programme or another programme with a proficiency test, the achieved test score will be added on top of the merit rating. Hence, the merit rating can exceed 340 points. 

Free quota for students with special circumstances

At upper secondary school, something called Free quota, is applied. This means that a limited amount of spots are reserved for students who, because of medical or social circumstances, should be granted priority over other applicants. It also applies when students are from schools where grades cannot be outright compared to grades from secondary school (e.g. foreign grades).

Students who get admitted through free quota need to be upper secondary school qualified (view first paragraph). Admission decisions through free quota are valid until the final admission. Please contact your guidance counsellor if you have special circumstances and the possibility to get admitted through free quota.
