University entrance • Here are general recommendations regarding entry requirements to universities. • There can be changes and it differs between universities and countries. • It’s important that the students look closely into this now, no subject changes in IBDP1.
• Medicine: Sweden, Denmark, some univ in Europe: Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Math SL or HL (Denmark Math HL) • Medicine: UK, USA: Chemistry HL, Biology HL, Math SL or HL • Engineering in general: Physics and Chemistry, both on HL recommended, Math SL or HL • Engineering: Sweden (in general) Physics SL, Chemistry SL and Math SL
Law: History SL/HL, high grades in HL Subjects Psychology: Psychology HL recommended, high grades in HL Subjects. History: History HL recommended, high grades in HL Subjects. Economics: Economics and/or Business and management, HL recommended and Math SL or HL. Architecture: UK, in general Physics SL, Math SL and a Portfolio, big difference between universities. Architecture: Sweden, Math Studies SL, Environmental system and societies SL or two science subjects.
Non regular diploma Biology + Chemistry + Physics Non regular Diploma • Yes, it is possible to chose all three science subjects and no humanities subject => Non regular Diploma • It’s only accepted if needed for entry requirements to universities. For example Medicine or Veterinarian studies in Sweden. • Has to be applied for by the Coordinator at IBO. Feedback first in November in DP1.
Can the students change their choices? • Yes, during spring term in PDP if there are place available in the groups. • Change in DP1? - No changes of subject - Until December okay to change level/s.
This is not due to Gymasieskolan 2011, we (together with all national programmes) are waiting for the final decision from Högeskoleverket, www.hogskoleverket.sewww.hogskoleverket.se • Math Studies = Matematik C • Math SL = Matematik E • Math HL = Matematik E • Chemistry SL, HL = Kemi B • Biology SL, HL = Biologi B • Physics SL, HL = Fysik B • Environmental system SL = Naturkunskap B
• Economics SL, HL = Samhällskunskap B • Business and management SL, HL = Samhällskunskap B • History SL, HL = Historia B • Psychology SL, HL = Psykologi B • Swedish B SL, HL = Svenska A • Swedish A SL, HL = Svenska B = Entry requirement for all Swedish universities • English B SL/HL = Engelska C
Application to Universities in Sweden Entry requirements for all courses at Swedish universities -Swedish A (Literature or Language & Literature SL or HL) -A complete Diploma with at least 24 points Admission for Swedish universities -Group 1 = Students with final grades from Exam (Both DP-students and students from Svenskt gymnasieprogram) -Group 2 = Students with Retake or grades from Komvux (Both DP- students and students from Svenskt gymnasieprogram) -Group 2 Much greater competition for places than in Group 1.
Meritpoäng only for application to universities in Sweden 2,5 • IBDP students can get up to 2,5 meritpoäng that will be added to the final IBDP grades. • We are waiting for the final decision regarding meritpoäng from Högskoleverket, www.hogskoleverket.se www.hogskoleverket.se
