Enrolment examination

Before enrolment, doctors of the public health service examine the children by a doctor for health impairments that are likely to affect the ability to attend school.

The primary objective of this school entrance examination (SEU) is to be able to initiate treatments or support measures in good time before the start of school.

Doctors do not decide whether a child is being trained or deferred from school.

Children are obliged to take part in the school entrance examination.

School medical teams carry out the school entrance examination close to home in primary schools. The invitation to do so is via the school.
