    Yes I got it. Being an EU applicant I'm not exactly thrilled.
    They are requiring me to upload my Swedish high school qualification which is far inferior to my German Abitur. Apparently my real qualifications don't interest them at all. Also they want it officially translated to English which just set me back £180.

    Do you think the transcripts are just fine or did you upload the actual certificates.

    In my case they specifically require me to scan the actual certificate and an official translation of it and upload it for now.

    Problem being: Both in Sweden and Germany official translations can only be made by authorised translators registered with the government (in case of Germany, the state government). These translators are usually fairly expensive.

    Really is a joke though: The German Abitur has more or less looked the same for over 50 years, a translation template would be more than enough. In Sweden such a template is even officially issued by the ministry of education, along with translation instructions so detailed, a child could easily do it.
