Found this description somewhere in uppsala site depths:

Nationella antagningsomg?ngen (HT2020).
Internationella antagningsomg?ngen (MASTERHT20).
which google translates to:
National admission round (Autumn 2020).
International Admission Round (MASTERHT20).

Yeah, thanks anyway for trying!

I'm trying to find out how they calculate the AU entry. Alternative entry points.

Reg 'AU' group info is scarce. Seems like a 'special' group for more specific assessment. May be they will require an interview or something like that. But that's just a theory.
You may check the previous year statistics for this group though and how it compares to other groups. If you select 'Urval 1'(Selection 1) you will see stats for all groups. They may be fully admitted or have a different MR requirements etc

From what I understand if Antagningspo?ng is '*', then group was fully admitted.

Yeah, I was just looking into that now. For one of my choices, the AU points was like 70. Then I saw some other programs with AU points at 900. So I assume 70 is a fairly low requirement?

It's a very mysterious selection process.

You can't compare these numbers across different programs (and not sure if it is always comparable within different groups of one program). Each university uses its own scale of merit ratings and it may be different for each program.

Yep. Unfortunately both Lund in Uppsala had updated the applications last years only few days before deadline, so it seems I'll have to wait till may be first week of April sad.gif

2 of my 3 choices now say conditionally qualified with a merit rating of 150/270 at Stockholm University. Not sure if this is very good...

You may check the passing grade for previous years on statistics site. It may differ this year though (both from different number of candidates and it may be calculated differently this year)

Hey All,

Yeah Uppsala updated, I have an AU merit rating 180 out of 285- hoping that this will get me into the program

I'm still waiting on Gothenburg though- In progress

hopefully, everyone gets into their programs.

Does anyone know what factors affect the merit rating the highest? I feel like they do not care if you had a very high gpa but would instead care about who took more credits. In addition, is it true that a certain number of Swedish citizens have to be accepted in every program?

From what I've seen in previous years discussions - different unis/programs calculate MR differently.

There are few common practices though - for example MR180 may usually mean that they have accounted your bachelor studies for 3 years/180 ects (and they won't increase it even if you have 4 years bachelor) - this is a maximum for previous education it seems.

Also this MR may be not final - ie they just scan educational docs and give everybody their 180, then they will update MR based on other parameters like grades, motivational letters etc.

Also there are some cases like MR 999 - they just want to put some exceptional candidate on top of the group.

No idea about quotas though, but probably they have it for various categories.
