Summary/Abstract: Analysing differences between students’ achievements by subject, this article seeks to answer the question of whether particular groups of students can be characterised in relation to their adhering to special sets of school subjects. In a search to identify such groups’ characteristics, the type and orientation of the school, and students’ family backgrounds are examined. Former experiences are here consolidated – and the importance of meanings attributed to school subjects by students are underlined.
