Looked on here for a while and couldn’t find much about this subject specifically about the equivalent to A-levels in Sweden . Want to know what a A, B, C and D in UK A-levels is in the Swedish education system.

You can see LSE's equivalent here: http://www.lse.ac.uk/study-at-lse/in...y-pages/sweden

Universities won't assign individual grades to individual subjects unless that is the way your country does it. If you receive an overall result, which seems the case for Sweden, they will assess it based on that in context. For LSE, you can see the expectation is 2500 credits, with 18-18.5 GPA depending on the A-level criteria for the degree (AAB on the lower end to A*AA on the higher end), excluding the project. I imagine other universities will have similar policies, although these will be published on those providers webpages.

Even for domestic qualifications, if they don't use that system (such as IB) they often won't have a one-to-one correspondence set up; IB for example, will have entry criteria expressed based on both overall points and on scores in individual HL subjects (and sometimes requiring no subject, at HL or SL, below a given grade) typically. The individual HL subjects aren't even directly comparable, and although some universities may set direct equivalences this is by no means ubiquitous (for example, an AAA course at Oxford will probably ask for 776 HL in IB, plus 38 or 40 overall minimum; other universities may outright state a 7=A*, 6=A etc, compared to whatever the universities A-level requirements for a given course are).

Hello / Hej! :ciao:

Figuring out international qualifications and their equivalents can definitely be tricky. Rather than trying to find out the specifics (e.g. A Level grades: A, B, C< D) - you might have more luck if you check directly with what the universities you are applying for require.

For example, if you are a Swedish student applying to ourselves, we provide the following information for our prospective students: LHU - Sweden

Likewise, if you are from the UK and you are applying for Swedish universities, perhaps the universities will also list the requirements directly.

Hope this helps and good luck,
Mike :top2:

Might be a bit late answering on this thread, but this might be useful for any future students interested in applying to Sweden with a levels.

All the information on how a levels grades are converted are available on UHR.se
They also have an evaluation service on their website which you could use. You must however apply to Sweden with achieved a level grades, you can not apply with predicted grades.

It is not up to individual universities to decide the grade conversions, all conversions are decided by antagning.se which is the Swedish equivalent of UCAS. Therefore, you need to contact UHR or antagning if you have any questions.
