Courses and grades
In upper secondary school, subjects are divided into courses. Courses may comprise 50, 100, 150 and 200 credits. There are also longer independent courses. Grades are given for every course completed.
Every course has a syllabus stating the objectives to be achieved. There are also grading criteria for every course stating the required level of achievement for the grades of Pass, Pass with Distinction and Pass with Special Distinction.
At the end of a upper secondary school program, students receive a final grade (leaving certificate), which is a compilation of the grades for all the courses included in the study program.

A student has the right to choose his/her program and specialization. Every national program also leaves room for course options. The number of options varies from program to program.
Programs also allow students an individual option totalling 200 credits. Within these limits, the student may choose from the courses offered in the municipality.
