Pupils in years 6 and 9 are to take compulsory national tests in history, geography, religion and social studies.

That's the proposal from Education Minister Jan Björklund speaking on public service radio's Ekot on Saturday.

"We have sixteen subjects in school and only national tests in three of them - We need to extend it and we are thinking of introducing tests in history, georgraphy, religion and social studies," he said.

Previously, Björklund has said that ""National tests are clear checkpoints that provide information to teachers, students and their parents about progress at school. Help can then be given where it is needed."
