The purpose of this study was to explore and analyze guidance counselor’s expressed views on grades and the use of grades in admission policies in the Swedish school system. This study was conducted using qualitative research interviews with four representatives of the chosen profession. The study is focused on students seeking admission to high school.The participants expressed some critique regarding the use of grades as an admission policy in Swedish schools but they also opined that an admission policy is necessary. Their critique was focused on what grades actually represent. Our respondents suggested that grades disregard pupil’s qualities which may have an impact on their choice of high school. Some guidance counselors conveyed critique regarding the use of alternative admission policies while other respondents considered it to be essential to complement the current system with new tools.
