This paper examines the influence from systematic factors in upper secondary school on student’s digital competence, using multilevel analysis. The data set includes 335 students participated in the ITU Monitor 2009 survey, and it contains information on study program (vocational or general studies), family background, grades, access to computers, time spent by the computer and the use of ICT at school. The results show differences between students in their ability to make use of ICT. When controlling for family background, the multilevel analysis indicate a strong influence of study program on results from the digital competence test.
