Good grades to apply to University?

Do high school grades matter much in Sweden?

Hi guys, I'm starting this topic to see if anyone can clear some things up for me. I am an EU citizen and I would like to study in Sweden. I am living and working here now. I have pretty terrible grades from high school however, how much does this affect me going forward? I am 27 years old if that makes any difference, and I have only been here for a few months.

Send in your documents to see what they are worth.

You can always sit högskoleprovet if your highschool grades are not sufficient. This would however require good Swedish. https://www.hogskoleprov.nu/

There is a minimum grade level especially for certain courses, and it is based on the general EU grading requirements.

If you had really bad grades, you may need to spend a year or so at Komvux (mainly taught in Swedish) to get your level up. But talk at a career advisor...

Hi Hi! I can say that I went to BTH in Karlskrona and here many peopel dit not have great grades, but still made it to the class but its not that high level education. I think if you go to a big university thats hard to get into it will be harder because there are more applicants. My advise is to just write a good letter of motivation, good explanation in it of grades and just try!
