Abstract [sv]

This study was about students and their study achievements. Data from available records for students admitted to the study programme of business administration was used. The students (N19393) were born in the period 1972–1984, living in Sweden and registered on the study programme sometime between 1993 and 2000. The students were divided into three groups on the basis of the grounds on which the students had been admitted. The first group had been admitted on the basis of their credits from uppersecondary 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. Study achievement was defined as the number of credits the students managed to attain each semester. The purpose of the study was to see if there were any differences in academic achievement between the three groups. Attention was also given to social background and sex. The results showed that approximately 50% 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 SweSAT-scores. The most common upper-secondary school programme, for the students who had completed upper-secondary school 1997 or later, was the Programme for Social Science (Samhällsvetenskaplig utbildning). About one fifth 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 semester than 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 social backgrounds. However, these differences were not as extensive as the differences between male and female study achievements.
