Paolina,

you have significant estimatives only to some categories is a common
result of mult logit regression models. Note that you have a lot of
categories (10). Yu can try simply change the reference group too.
Other explanation you can see in Hoffmann, J.P. Generalized linear
models: an applied approach.

HTH,

Joao Lima
