The 15 minutes

One of the interesting stuff about the Swedish culture, is the 15 minutes rule. If you have a lecture at 8:00 for example, it actually starts at 8:15 that applies for all the education related matters except for Exam of course, it does start sharp at the specific time. For the meeting with your  assignment group, that rules apply as well, however If you are meeting at half past anytime- It is exactly at the specified time for that case (eg: 10:30 is actually 10.30).
For the lectures, there is also a break for first 15 minutes of each hour, to stretch out and do whatever you feel you want to do, the idea of it, is not boring the students out, and have a fresh mind always for better understanding of the lectures.
