Tougher Requirements for Entering High School

Published måndag 31 mars 2008 kl 09.43
Minsiter for Education, Jan Björklund

Swedish pupils who want to attend high school may face tougher requirements. On Monday, Minister for Education, Jan Björklund, received a proposition compiled by state researcher Anita Ferm for reformed high school acceptance criteria.

According to the proposition, pupils who plan to attend high schools providing vocational education are supposed to reach satisfactory grades in 8 out of 10 subjects. Other pupils are supposed to reach satisfactory results in 12 out of 16 subjects.

Björklund made clear that his government intends to increase the level of education in Swedish high schools, calling the current system delusive.

Representatives of the teachers’ union and even of the Social Democrats welcomed the overall plan.
