Government proposes fewer extra credits
When it comes to high school education, the government wants to get rid of certain merit-based credits that students take to raise their chances of getting accepted to university.
The maximum number of final credits awarded by Swedish high schools, or secondary schools, is 20. But students can earn extra credits in certain classes, thereby racking up as many as 22.5 credits.
The government, according to Swedish television news, suggests doing away with the extra credits that are awarded for courses connected to certain university programs.
However, students would still be able to earn extra credits for advanced math and language courses, reports news agency TT.
