At least with the k, anybody can contribute. After the first year, one maximizes their contribution every year to their k plan without failure. But you can follow the number of years working as a different guideline if you graduate later or earlier.
Choice[ edit ] Students in Swedish primary schools have very limited choice regarding their curriculum. Students cannot usually make any decisions about their education until the fall term of the sixth grade, where students can choose a foreign language most often SpanishFrenchGermanand sometimes other languages such as Russianor extra English or Swedish and which handicraft course the student wants to take, where carpentry or sewing is offered.
A similar situation applies to most other subjects. This is the result of a concerted effort to streamline curricula, in the hope that this will favor students from families with lower levels of educational attainment. In many schools the course "Elevens Val" "The Student's Choice" is offered, which can include, for instance, drama, an extra foreign language, or help in different subjects.
The Swedish School Plan   also highly encourages an individualistic education in which each student has their specific needs met.
The students are also encouraged not only to participate in student councils but also to actually form the education they desire together with their teachers, choosing which books to read and how to balance practice with theory depending on which the individual student finds most enjoyable to learn from.
The preparatory instance allows for specialization in either natural sciences or social sciences. Grading[ edit ] Pupils do not start receiving official grades until the 6th grade.
But from yearstudents do receive written reviews instead of getting letter grades. The written reviews includes the knowledge that the student have and also the knowledge that is required for the specific subject. The written reviews describes the lowest acceptable level of knowledge that a student have in year 3, and states the level that a student need for grades A,C and E in grade Note that a failing grade did not exist as a formal grade.
Compared to course grades, failed tests were often actually marked with IG. This was, however, dependent on the preferences of the teacher and did not make any difference.
However, from the autumn ofa new grading scale has been introduced into the Swedish school system: If a student is given an F, they will receive a written review of how to improve themselves.
It is normal for a pupil to have 17 grades, as most study a third language — traditionally German or French, but in recent years Spanish has become the most widely studied. He or she will then only receive 16 grades and cannot reach a higher score than The sixteen subjects used to calculate the total must include the three core subjects — English, Swedish, and Mathematics.
If the pupil fails any of the core subjects, she or he lacks qualification to attend secondary school. However, the student can still attend the secondary school individual program individuellt program IVeither to gain competence in the core subjects and start a secondary school program or to complete the individual program and satisfy the requirements for a student degree see below.
Secondary school[ edit ] Secondary school, called gymnasieskolalasts for three years however, some students study for four or more years for various reasons and is formally elective, although most attend it, and there are very few prospects for those who do not attend.
Secondary school is divided into so called "programs", i. The "programs" are further divided into orientations.Six out of ten American teenagers witness bullying in school once a day or even more frequently, reported John A.
