Year Levels

Year Levels

At Bladins International School of Malmö we base the year level placement on the students date of birth as per the academic year. We use August 31st as the cut off date between the year levels. 

Note that each individual applicants previous education will also be taken into consideration, therefore there can be times when the date of birth and year level do not match.
