Matriculation Examination

Students take the Matriculation Examination at the end of their general upper secondary studies. The Matriculation Examination is a maturity test in which students demonstrate their knowledge and skills acquired during general upper secondary education.

The Matriculation Examination consists of at least 4 tests. All students take the test in mother tongue and choose three other tests in compulsory subjects: Finnish or Swedish as a second language, foreign languages, mathematics and humanities and natural sciences. If they so wish, they can choose to take one or more additional tests.

As of spring 2022, the minimal requirement for completing a Matriculation Examination is to pass five tests. This applies to all students who start their examinations in spring 2022 or after. 

The Matriculation Examination is organised twice a year in March-April and in September-October, and it takes place simultaneously at all general upper secondary schools in Finland.
