@Psy-T: Wouldn't the British passport also mean EU-citizenship? That would leave you more options throughout Europe.

Yeah I was already supposed to post them but then my friend's hard drive crashed and he had to go to some funeral in Bosnia so he didn't have time to try and repair it. My other friend also has photos, but she's living in Canada, so when she comes home she'll mail them to me. She said it will be on the 27th.

Ehm I'm not entirely sure about my goals in life. I want a job in IT, Manegement or Politics, hopefully that pays pretty good cause I like to live somewhat rich. Also want to live in different places all over the world, and travel lots. And of course I want a good social life and such, but I'm not worried about that, doesn't feel like it will matter what path I choose.

Wow, thats impressive! Welcome again!

St_Andrew: I guess that the education that you're finishing is the one that will grant you access to bachelor and master studies at universities? In that case, I suggest that you figure out whether you want to pursue that route, and if so, what the formal requirements are for getting access to your dream studies. If it's anything like in Denmark, the school you graduated from doesn't matter at all (just like your current grades won't matter when you have your bachelor's degreee, and your bachelor's degree won't matter when you have you master's degree, and your master's degree won't matter once you have your ph.d. degree), so you can ignore the "reputation" part in your deliberations.
So, if I'm right in these suppositions, you should only choose this "famous" school if it provides a more competitive environment and/or more challenges for you. [rant]Back when I attended pre-uni school I was studying with both smart and stupid people, and of course the exercises and material were aimed at the stupid ones. I quickly found out that I could get by without doing any exercises or reading, but just by listening during class. Of course, while this was sufficient to let me pass the classes, it was such a shallow treatment that I remember very little today. Had the exercises been challenging and the material thought provoking, I think that I would have put an effort into it, and I would probably remember a lot more about, say, ancient Hellas today than I do.[/rant] The point of this rant is to remind you that there is such a thing as intellectual satisfaction from being challenged, and it is crucial if you're learning to learn, rather than to get a diploma. And if this school you're talking about is a school for the elite, it might mean a more challenging environment, and this is an aspect you can't ignore.

Made sense?


Totally makes sense. Thanks. I suppose you are right my high school wont matter that much once I'm finnished university (although I guess it would matter some at the CV, no?). But yeah, my experience of high school is similar to yours I think. Most people in my programe/class are smart people, but I think the teaching is somewhat slow, and I don't think I have taken a single note during my whole high school period, and still got well above average grades. So that would defently be a great benefit of changing to this other school, since they have a lot more rapid teaching, with more courses, and natinal top students (Just so you know, I'm not a national top student, just that I'm smart enough to get in there, hehe), so I would actually have to work to keep up, and in that way learn even more than I would have in the current "slow" pace of my school. So yeah, I defently would learn more going to that school!

And yes the programe I'm in now gives me access to pretty much every university education I want in Sweden, and it would be the same programe even if I changed school, so no difference there.

But the other problem is that I'm not sure what I'm doing after high school, so I dont know if I even need the higher marks. I might need high ones tho. This uncertainly of what I really want to do further add to the problem, so it's really hard for you guys to have an opinion, but it was help like that I was looking for

st_andrews: just simplifying your options for you as i perceive them:
1. easy and comfortable
2. challenging and rewarding

does that help?

Depends on your choice of career. If connections are an important aspect of the job (like in management and politics), you might be able to convince someone that you know a lot of the right people by showing that you have attended school with these people. But even then, it will only be a tie-breaker, if the position is between you and someone with the same education as you.
When I applied for my current job, the professor I work under looked over my CV and basically said "remove this" to everything but my candidate degree and my teaching experience. He was convinced that showing the ability to know what's relevant and what's not (by thinning the CV) was more important than showing that you're a well-liked guy with plenty of work experience. As he was regularly appointed to rate applicants himself, I of course took his advice. And it worked out, too.
I know how good it feels to achieve a great grade, and how you're unstoppable at that point, but the sad fact of the matter is that grades and praise only helps you to the next level, and when you're rated by others they only look at your most recent grades. I guess the same goes when you're looking for a job. It doesn't matter to the future employer what you did prior to your last job, or what credentials landed you that job, but only what the last job was and how you handled it.

Germany: Nice people - great music scene.
The Netherlands: Obnoxious people - above average music scene.

The choice is obvious.

woah, I think that's a too generalizing statement considering the population size and multicultural/multiregional diversity of both countires. Even in my little country you have mentality differences between, say, the capital Vienna and the rural areas.
I say talking CITIES would be more helpful (also EDM-scene wise).

Of course it's generalizations. Exceptions are numerous. However, I've been to both countries loads of times, and the only obnoxious German I can remember was a waiter at a restaurant where we arrived five minutes before closing time. In the Netherlands, I can't remember any strangers being nice to me beyond a (very) basic level of courtesy, but I sure as hell remember a lot of incidents with people acting like arrogant assholes. The one that takes the price was in Arnhem, where we (a group of eigth people - boys and girls) experienced that no clubs/bars would let us in. The only two places where the bouncers actually explained why, it was because we had a black guy with us and because some of us weren't dutch. However, the Dutch that weren't strangers (e.g. people I was introduced to) were quite nice, so maybe it's not an issue if you live there permanently.
