50 000 wannabe-students have been racking their brains Saturday, as they took the bi-annual national university aptitude test, Högskoleprovet.

The test is used by many Swedes as a way to get into university if their regular school grades haven't quite been good enough. By doing well in the test, they can get into high-status courses such as medicine and law.

The test includes questions examining the applicants' knowledge in Swedish, English, mathematics, and understanding maps, diagrams and tables. It is held twice a year, and the results are valid for university entrance for five years, reports news agency TT.
