We have gathered here needed information about the application process and aptitude test content. You are advised to read through the information carefully.
General information about the aptitude test:
The test day is August 6th, 2020. We test only English language skills to ensure that accepted students are able to study fully in English as a language of instruction. Applicants don’t need to, nor should they prepare for the test.
Grade 1 will have a group test that doesn’t require reading or writing skills. After the group test, applicants will have an interview. The interview time can be any time until 4pm. So applicants applying to the first grade are advised to reserve the whole day for the test. Schedules will be released later.
Grades 2-7 will have only a written test. Reserve time for that between 7.30am - 12.00pm. The test itself will take approximately 90 minutes. The schedules will be released later.
Grades 8-9 will have a written test (in English) and an interview (in Finnish). Reserve the whole day for the test. The interview time can be any time during the day. Schedules will be released later.
Spoken Finnish skills are tested from applicants of 8th and 9th grade. Only a beginner level of Finnish is required. (European frame of Languages level A1.2.)
