S6 is the first year of the baccalaureate cycle. Since all students have made different subject choices, they will only be with their original class in a few periods each week. Instead, the entire year level with meet each other in different classes throughout the week.
Students will follow the subjects in the package designed by themselves in S5. They are allowed to change subjects up to and including 15 September, if the schedule so permits.
From 15 September and until the end of the S6 school year, students are only allowed to move between levels within a subject (e.g. from History 4p to History 2p) and to drop subjects, as long as the schedule permits these changes and that all rules for subject packages are followed. A change to a more advanced course may be conditional upon the passing of an attainment test.
All social and academic events in S6 can be found in the calendar on Lectio. The easiest way to get an overview is by clicking “hovedmenu” followed by “månedskalender”.
