INFORMATION REGARDING G-TESTS – NATIONAL TESTS
G-tests are national tests used at four Swedish schools of music:
Royal College of Music in Stockholm
The School of Music, Theatre and Art at Örebro University
Ingesund School of Music
Malmö Academy of Music
You only take the G-test once and at the school of music that you have ranked as your first choice in your application at universityadmissions.se. The result will apply at all four schools of music listed above. If you passed a G-test in 2022, it can count towards 2023.
G-tests completed in Gothenburg will not be count towards admission in 2023, which means that if you have ranked Gothenburg higher than Ingesund School of Music in your application, you must complete the G-test both in Gothenburg and at the one of the above four universities that you have ranked as you second choice after Gothenburg in your application. If you have any questions regarding this, you are welcome to contact us!
