University test impossible for some
The new Swedish test to get into university has more mathematics in it - but there is no provision for people who are dyscalculic and unable to handle numbers.
Ann-Louise Ljungblad is an advisor at the Swedish agency for special needs, and says to Swedish Radio News that, just like since dyslexics get some sections of a test read out to them, that dyscalculics should be able to use a calculator for the test, since they are fundamentally unable to do sums in their heads.
According to the law the Swedish Agency for Higher Education has to make sure that everyone has a chance at the test, regardless of whether they have a disability. Swedish Radio News does not know when a test suitable for dyscalculics will be brought out.
