Finnish matriculation examination

""

Virtually all students who complete the upper secondary school syllabus will also take the national matriculation examination.

The purpose of the matriculation examination held at the end of the general upper secondary education is to determine whether students

  • have acquired the knowledge and skills required by the curriculum for the upper secondary school
  • have reached an adequate level of maturity in line with the goals of the upper secondary school.

Passing the Matriculation Examination entitles the candidate to continue their studies at on a higher education level (either at a university or a university of applied sciences (UAS). Upon successful completion of the matriculation examination and the entire upper secondary school syllabus, students are awarded a separate certificate that shows details of the tests passed and the levels and grades achieved.

Students in vocational upper secondary education and training may also take the matriculation examination.

The matriculation examination is drawn up nationally, and there is a centralised body to check its individual tests against uniform criteria.
