Dear Friend,I really appreciate your website. Its a great deed. It opens every student that is planning to study in. I have questions that I want you to answer for me:
Dear friend, thank you for your kind appreciation. Thank you for writing to me.
1. Is passing the Enterance Exam means you are selected?
No. After entrance only, the selection process starts. You are invited to entrance means, your document are complete and your application is ok. After you pass the entrance and cut-off the minimum score of the particular college, then keeps you on the list of selection, out of which only the students of your limited quota gets admission.
2. What scores are safe?
It depends. It depends upon the college itself, which college you have applied and what the minimum score requirements of that particular college. But, I can say you, if you get above 80% of the score, this could be assured somewhat safe since there might be chances of being selected from at least one of the college out of your four choices.
3. What is next after passing the Exams? The process?
From your side, the next step is just wait for the admission result. Meanwhile, you can utilize this time by learning Finnish language and exploring more about Finnish culture, environment, society and job issues. From the college prospects, they will be busy on processing your application for admission.
4. How many students APPLY? How many pass the Enterance Exam? How many are accepted finally?
Again, it depends upon the courses and the college itself. The colleges of Helsinki gets more applicants and the competition is very high for admission due to high number of applicant and limited seats while colleges of rural areas gets less applicants so there will be high chances of being admitted since they set comparatively low pass score of the entrance.
Generally, with my knowledge, in colleges of Helsinki; about 70% of the total applicants are called for Entrance. Out of the total students who appeared for entrance, 65% passes the entrance of particular college by crossing the minimum score requirement of that college. Again, I would like to remind you minimum score requirement of each college might differ. Then, out of the total pass students, on the merit list, only 50% are accepted for admission depending upon their available seats for admission. This average applies only to Helsinki based colleges, the colleges outside Helsinki will have much more acceptance rate than this.
