The purpose of this investigation was to study what students in in the first year of the social science program in high school think about the guidance they had access to during their time at primary school. This is to ensure that it the guidance students are entitled to and contribute to the development of the business. The survey was conducted at two different high schools in southern Sweden. A total of 57 students participated in the survey. The results show that 46 and 29 percent of students at the two schools did not feel they had the information they needed for their upper secondary school The results proving what previous research reached that students selection process can lead to stress and uncertainty associated with the choice to high school. The results of the present study showed that girls in particular have high standards for themselves and experience stress and anxiety associated with their selection to a greater extent than boys. The results also show that the majority of students do meet a counselor but the availability and quality of the counseling varied between schools. When the liability is delegated to the municipal level in terms of the organization of guidance activities are controlled quality and access to how much principals choose to prioritize activities. The study shows that students had access to similar counseling programs such as field trips, work experience, open houses and individual guidance and that the majority is happy with their choice. The results also show that students are asking for more activities related to education and employment. From a gender perspective, more girls than boys claimed that they felt unease and experienced difficulties selecting, confirming what the agency's report states.
