In Norway, everyone has the right to upper secondary education after completing primary school, a right most people today also use. A total of 93% of all 16–18-year-olds participate in upper secondary education (Statistics Norway 2020a). 98% of the students who completed primary school in 2019, went straight into upper secondary education. In the school year 2019–20, students could choose between 13 educational programs. There are almost as many who choose vocational subjects as higher education preparation (Vg1). Students also have several opportunities to switch between educational programs during the course.
