Entrance to higher education in Sweden
Umeå University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Educational Measurement.
2004 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The rules for admission to higher education in Sweden are continuously discussed, and they have been changed several times during the last 20 years. Final grades from upper secondary school play an important role in the process of transition to higher education. Firstly, final grades are needed for eligibility for higher education, and secondly, final grades are used as one of the selection instruments. The other selection instrument is an optional entrance test, called the Swedish Scholastic Assessment Test (SweSAT). The admittance rule is that selection is based either on grades or on test results. Since the grading system in upper secondary school was drastically changed in the middle of the nineties, the situation regarding admittance to higher education is somewhat problematic at present. Students may be admitted to higher education either on the basis of old grades from upper secondary school, on the basis of new grades from upper secondary school, or on the basis of test results. The fairness in this system provides an interesting measurement problem.
