Abstract [sv]

Students and their study achievements are in focus in this report. Attention is given to the three and a half year long Programme for Social Work. The students (N2956) where divided into three groups, according to the grounds on which they had been admitted to the programme. The first group had been admitted on the basis of their credits from upper-secondary school, the second on the basis of their SweSAT-scores and the third group on the basis of their SweSAT-scores with additional credit for work experience. The purpose of the study was to see if there were any differences in academic achievement between the three groups. Academic achievement was defined as the number of credits achieved at university. Attention was also given to social backgrounds and male/female variance. The results showed that approximately 85% of the students were women. The proportion of students from Social Group 1 was highest among those who had been admitted on the basis of their credits from upper-secondary school. The most common uppersecondary school programme was the Programme for Social Science (Samhällsvetenskaplig utbildning). About one fourth of the students who had completed upper-secondary school 1997-1999 had taken supplementary secondary education level courses after they had left upper-secondary school. The study showed that the female students attained more course points per

term compared to the male students. There were also differences, in terms of the number of credits attained per term, between the students from the three groups and between students with different socio-economic backgrounds. However, these differences were not as extensive as the differences between male and female study achievements.
