As i read on lund page, some Universities have limited our excess to Merit Ratings. Therefore From my point of view, the most crucial for us now is to get the status - Qualifi ... (show full quote)


Gvantsa, what do you mean when you say that some universities have limited our excess to Merit Ratings? Is it a way to cut down the applications you mean smile.gif ?

I mean that it is unavailable for us to see our MR. So has stated Lund in its post, which I saw in somebody's comment in last year posts.

No, of course not to cut down. Just to give us more space I think biggrin.gif to avoid us from uncertain situations biggrin.gif tongue.gif

Saw this comment to MS Applicants of 2015 from someone who got accepted in 2014:


"Hi Everyone - I just wanted to post quickly cause I know you're all super excited and nervous about your merit rankings and applications. Here's the deal - there are so many moving parts in the application game, when they say 'don't worry about it, there's no way you can know what your merit ranking means,' they're totally right. I had a really low merit ranking in my group last year, and I got selected and became the chair of my class. From your end, the number means next to nothing besides freaking you out a bit. The only thing it means is that you've qualified in the first round and they're looking at your applications. There are a bunch of things that are going on behind the scenes that you can't know based on the number. So try to breathe through the next three weeks. I know it's hard (I was there, too), but most of you will be OK.

If you have contacts at your schools, check in with them. Don't be afraid to call up professors in the program(s) you're applying for and ask to have a conversation with them about your qualifications and the program in general. Make yourselves known, and make it known you're interested. But don't over-do it. But, the best advise I can give you is to try and relax and not check your application every 20 seconds (I know, easier said than done!). Spend time doing what you love and let these next few weeks go by as they will."

Hope this makes someone feel better!

I wrote to admissions office of Malmo hoegskola, and they told me this:
"Merit ratings for all applicants will be fixed later, before the selection. Since international credentials aren’t registered in our system automatically, merit ratings must be checked manually."

So relax for now smile.gif

Lol you're not alone, I've applied to Gothenburg, Uppsala, Umeå and Lund and all four applications are still in progress, we've got no choice but to hang in there and be patient!

Both my Uppsala and Lund applications are still 'In Progress.' Do I have to mention that I'm totally freaking out?

Uppsala apparently still has applications open for late application, so it seems that even those who applied on time will be "in progress" a bit longer.
