Immediate continuation of studies became easier for completers of comprehensive school but more difficult for new passers of the matriculation examination
23 Jan 2014
Immediate continuation of studies was slightly easier for completers of the 9th grade of comprehensive school in 2012 than one year earlier. In contrast, immediate continuation of studies was more difficult than before for new passers of the matriculation examination. In all, 8.5 per cent of the completers of the comprehensive school and 62.5 per cent of the new passers of the matriculation examination failed to get a place for further studies. The share of those left outside further studies went down for completers of comprehensive school and went up for new passers of the matriculation examination by good one-half of a percentage point from one year before. These data derive from education statistics compiled by Statistics Finland.
