Abstract [sv]

This study is about school grades and college applications. It focuses on the effects of supplementary adult upper-secondary education. From a Swedish perspective, it is important to study the effects of such education due to the important role that grades have in the Swedish college-selection process. The persons in the study graduated from upper secondary school sometime 1997–2001 (N361466). Background variables used in this study are: Age, social group, country of birth, the parents’ country of birth and the parents’ highest level of study. The results indicate that about 50 percent of the persons have studied either the Natural Science Programme or the Social Science Programme in the upper-secondary school. High achievers, in terms of high grades from the last year in upper-secondary school, are those persons born in the country, belonging to social-group 1 and with parents that have a high educational level. The study also shows that the upper-secondary schools have become more generous over time. The grades for the graduating students are getting higher and higher each year. About 30 percent have studied in adult upper-secondary school. About one third of those have boosted their grades. About 40 percent have applied to college. Among the college-applicants, there are more women then men. The college-applicants are also characterised by having parents with a high educational level. About 40 percent of the college applicants have studied in adult upper-secondary school, and that group is

characterised by having parents with a low educational level.
