Thank you for your research and feedback:)

I can see that I overlooked your detail regarding the '4-year bachelor's degree.' However, this doesn't change my points.

Firstly, the overall educational level in Denmark has increased in recent decades, and more people have obtained higher education than before. Additionally, the proportion of individuals with a medium and long higher education has also risen (see attached link on page 3) - education that typically takes between 3-4.5 years and 5 years, respectively.

Now, onto the second part of your comment regarding individuals who may not meet the average to enter university. Of course, there has to be some form of selection process; otherwise, an education system would not function if people could freely choose without considering capacity or demand for a specific education.

However, the important thing here is that it's not your wallet that determines it. It's your grades, something that can be changed through hard work and curiosity.

Furthermore, while one might not get into their dream education, even with relatively low grades, there are still many education options available, even at the university level, that are open for applications.

Moreover, for all these educational paths, one is eligible for financial support (SU). So, perhaps one doesn't get into their first-choice education, but at least one can pursue an education and even receive a monthly paycheck for it.
