A disproportionate number of the Swedish schools awarding students higher grades than they deserve lie in Stockholm, according to Svenska Dagbladet newspaper. Grade inflation is when students get higher grades than what their results on the national test reflect.

About forty percent of the country's schools that inflate math grades for kids on their way to secondary school are located in Stockholm, according to Svenska Dagbladet newspaper.

The investigator from the Swedish Schools Inspectorate believes in densely populated areas, schools competion for students can play a role.

The Inspectorate also believes teacher wages may contribute towards grade inflation, since there are schools where salaries are related to student's marks, and "customer satisfaction".
