    Grades are BBC
    In maths and chemistry B
    And physics is C
    Don't know what their requirements are but when I emailed the admission they told it all depends on the amount of students that apply and what grades they have so if there is other students out there with better grades than me then I got beating due to competition so does that makes sense.

    Have you emailed them ??

    What did they expect from you? Do they emphasize grades in Sweden or are they just bothered about level?

    Well number 1 is that I was born and raised in Sweden expo in Stockholm so I do have the grades (hogskolan) which is like gcse, do they emphasize a lot on the grades?
    Well when I looked up what maths D in Sweden was on Google I found a past paper and most of the maths there was pretty much c3/c4 so since alevels it regarded highly in Europe and America I think they may not see as bad as you may think
    If I am confident on if am going to get in ?? I don't know applied for ucas and Sweden universities just to maximise my chances of going to university but always kelp your head up and hope for the best.

    Really wish you the best with that then. I just found this helpful table for us on the Lund uni website which shows what our A levels mean in Sweden, approx:































    Ämne Svensk kurs Motsvarar
    Biologi Bi B Biology – AS level
    Fysik Fy A Physics – AS level
    Fy B Physics – A level
    Kemi Ke B Chemistry – AS level
    Matematik Ma D Mathematics – AS level


    So judging by this I have beyond Biology B as I have an A level in it (even if it's a D grade), I have Fysik B, and I have Matematik E as I took mine to A level. I am currently doing the chemistry A level distance from England and traveling back and forth for exams. So I decided to submit my results day transcript for the AS results last year, not sure whether they will consider that, but if they do then it's the Kemi B fulfilled!
    Do you not fancy going back to Stockholm? And final question, do you think it is considerably more competitive in the city unis such as Lund Goteborg and Stockholm than the rural ones?
    Thanks again new friend

    Fancy going back to swden ?
    I dont know since more opportunities here in England and I like it here tho miss my old friends when see them on facebook but hey the world doesn't wait for no one so yeah.
    Since a lot of courses at bachelor's level are not taught at English I have feeling the universities that do teach bsc in English would be competitive either on big or small areas so yeah it's going to be a b it competitive but looking at that table you just sourced I think we Do stand a good chance of getting in.
    If I may ask you a question?
    How are you going to finance yourself CSN ?? Savings ?
    Just asking ??

    No problem ask away, I'm living with my Swedish boyfriend here. But my father placed money into savings for me solely for education, so this will be my main source of income. Once I have Swedish personummer I'm hoping to get student loan if needed. But otherwise will apply for scholarships.
    How about you?
    And I understand what you mean, but I did notice around 750 people applied to Karolinska last year for Swedish biomedicine compared to 300 for their English bachelors. For the programme I'm looking at, they are accepting 10 internationals and 40 Swedes, what I'm wondering really is how there can be 40 Swedes applying to do am English taught bachelors, and whether they will actually get 40 Swedes applying to it. The instructor told me that they will take more international students if their Swedish quota isn't filled.
    This is also the first year of this particular programme at this institution, do you think that will make it sightly easier to get in?

    Well that's the proportion they are given by the university and the government that it's 1:4 so for every 10 eu students there can only be 1 international students so I do think that there is going to be full house

    No no, she mentioned that the 40 were Swedish nationals and the ten would be EU/international, not sure if that makes a place easier or harder
