Not bad.
I also applied for Master's studies. I got MR of 180,0 out of 999,9 at Orebro for IT and Robotics. So I guess, we are on the same boat.
But I can't make sense out of it.

Hey guys!

These are my choices:

1. Industrial Management, KTH - In Progress
2. Production Engineering and Management, KTH - In Progress
3. Industrial Management, Uppsala - In Progress
4. Integrated Product Design, KTH - In Progress

Those merit ratings appear to be really mind-boggling... I wonder when we'll get notified about the (un)qualified status...

I have also checked the admission statistics from last year (http://statistik.uhr.se/) and I was just stunned.. For my first choice there were 527 applicants and they only accepted 23, for second choice 67 out of 433.. This seems to be the case with most programmes, but surprisingly as I read posts on the Internet I didn't get the impression that it is very hard to get admitted... huh.gif

Good luck and keep us updated! smile.gif

Dear Sleepless, Can you tell us about what Unis and Programs you applied to? and more info about your ratings? It'd be helpful. I wanted to apply to Stockholm Business School but as i dont have GMAT i made gothenburg my first choice (which i doubt i will get in to with out GMAT event with a CGPA of 3.84 out of a possible 4.00).

Dear Salazaar, from where did you find the stats?

And hopefully once we are all done with the SI application we can create a new discussion for the scholarship too and share more about ourselves?

@Student 123, here is the link to statistics regarding admissions from the last years. It's in Swedish but it's easy to deduce the key information. http://statistik.uhr.se/

I think you should definitely be happy smile.gif you've got the maximum MR and here is what they say about it on the Stockholms Universitet page:

Inget urval

Om utbildningen inte har n?got urval f?r alla, som ?r beh?riga och har anm?lt sig i tid, plats p? utbildningen.


From my understanding (Google translate, that is biggrin.gif ) it means that no selection is needed and everyone who applied on time will get a place. Congrats!

Hej hej to all the other stressed out souls wanting to end up in Sweden !
I applied to Chalmers, Lund, KTH and Umea and everything is still "in progress".

I just got an email from KTH saying the process might take time so that some of us won't have any status modification until the last week before the final results.

I think we should not be scared neither over the number of applicants (think of the ones who don't care as much as we do, who don't have their english results on time, who won't fulfill all the requirements in the end) nor on the number of points we have for each master (because in the end it all depends on the level of the other applicants and you can be admitted with 300/999 or not admitted with an apparently good 850).

Let's stay strong, we'll make it smile.gif

Also last year and the year before KTH issued most MRs in late March, so I guess we'll just have to wait. Did you write an e-mail to KTH asking about this or did they mail you on their own?

EDIT: I also got and e-mail from them.

You're probably right, reading threads from previous years I deducted that most of the applicants from uhr.se simply didn't complete their applications, it takes only 5 min so they didn't care - that's why the number is very high. Swedish universities don't usually reject people if they meet the requirements, instead they place them as reserve. So I think we should care more about the number of reserves (qualified but rejected) than total number of applicants. And in the end, most of the people on this forum got admitted to their first choices, so that's a very positive sign! smile.gif

It shows statistics from this year. You can check how many people applied to your programs, but obviously not the admission results biggrin.gif
