Distance Grades Not Valid
The Swedish Schools Inspectorate has criticised two municipalities in southern Sweden for giving course credit to around 50 Chinese students who have never lived in or studied in this country.
They were granted high school equivalency grades by the adult education departments of the municipalities of Kristianstad and Båstad. But the students were tested and graded in China, with private companies as intermediaries.
The school inspectorate says there is no support for granting such course credits under the law, and they would be invalid should the students ever apply to schools of higher education in Sweden.
