If you tell me which program it is I can look into the admissions from last year and give you a better indication of your chances.

StuntUya, last year 25 people were selected in the first admission round for Digital Bussiness in Jonkoping. The lowest merit rating accepted was 888 out of 999, it might help for orienation when you get yours. Its a pretty tough competition it seems, but you might make it with alternative merits.
(I don't understand the system that well so I might be wrong too, it's better to just wait and see the results on April 6 but I know that's way too hard haha)

This is a tough one to call. In 2017 though, there were 279 that applied and 84 of them had that program as their number 1 choice. In the first selection (Urval 1), in the AINT Urvalsgrupp, 10 people got in and 0 were on the reserves list (so everyone in this Urvalsgrupp got in) and in the BINT Urvalsgrupp, 15 people got in and 20 people were on the reserves list. Urval 2 has similar results.

In this case it appears that it comes down to whether you are in the AINT or BINT Urvalsgrupp. You will probably get in if you end up in the AINT Urvalsgrupp, but if you end up in BINT then you would need to have quite a strong application. I did some quick googling but I didn't find what these groups mean.

Does anyone know much about the Mathematics program at Lund university? Like how the stats are for getting in, and just in general the program?

I have always wondered, when they say that selection criteria will be based on the number of credits completed in the relevant courses, does this mean they only look at the amount of the courses you did, and not the grades? Coz most of the programs I have looked at, none of them specifically said something like "we want super intelligent people with high GPAs" which is the case in other countries I have applied to, so it got me thinking, could it be that some of these Swedish Universities do not care about grades?

Last year I got admitted at Lund under Master of public Health. Unfortunately, I failed to secure scholarship as I am a fee paying student. Lund did not show any merit rating but the other options I had chosen, merit rating was displayed. Am not sure if anyone has received a merit rating from Lund

Hi, it might be a silly question but I'm just nervous as hell. I just noticed that there is this message "You must scan your original documents - scans of copies cannot be accepted." above my uploaded documents on the Certificates, diplomas and transcripts section. I don't remember it's always been there or just popped up.. Does everyone have the same message?

This mostly happen when you haven't scanned the original document that was issued by the college.i.e If the document has another stamp and signature from Commissioner of Oaths, its not regarded as original document. So try to scan the document as issued by the College or University

It has always been there, just make sure you upload the scan of the original document issued by your school, not a scan of a copy or of another previous scan.
