Sweden set to cancel university entry exam for second time due to coronavirus

August 18, 2020

Every year, tens of thousands sit the Swedish Scholastic Aptitude Test (SweSAT, högskoleprovet). The exam is not compulsory, but students can use their results to help them get into university.

It was cancelled last spring due to the coronavirus pandemic, and is now set to be cancelled again. The Education Minister said it's likely there will be two exams in spring 2021 instead.

The move to cancel the exam comes after consultation with the universities responsible for carrying out the tests, and the body responsible for organising the exams recommending their cancellation.
