National tests are compulsory and broken down into the following year groups and subjects:

  • Year 2: Danish (reading)
  • Year 3: Mathematics
  • Year 4: Danish (reading) and English
  • Year 6: Danish (reading) and mathematics
  • Year 7: English
  • Year 8: Danish (reading), mathematics and physics/chemistry

The aim of national tests is to strengthen the evaluation culture in primary and lower-secondary schools and to have a uniform tool that can evaluate across the country.

Information on test results is confidential, except for reporting results at national level. The tests are not covered by the law on open administration and therefore you cannot seek access to the results.

"Meddelelsesbogen" is a dialogue-tool for messages between the school, parents and pupils. It is mandatory in primary and secondary school. The purpose is to support a basis for constructive dialogue between the student, parents and school to work together on the next steps in the student's learning and well-being.

The tool consists of focal points the educational staff deem to be essential to support the pupils academic and cross-curricular development. These points must be based on the knowledge of the educational staff and current observations of the pupil.

The focus points should be practical and concrete. It is the school's pedagogical staff who continuously select the focus points and discuss with pupils and parents what is most important to focus on in the student's development.

From the 2022/23 school year, this dialogue-tool has replaced the student plan.

Further information is on the website of the Ministry of Children and Education:

If you have lost your leaving/examination certificate from a primary and lower-secondary school, you can obtain a copy by using the self-service solution.

You can obtain a copy only if the leaving/examination certificate is from after 2008/09, and has been digitally archived by the school in question. If that is not so, contact the school.

If you wish to appeal the result of the test or the information in a student plan, you can contact the school principal.
