High school studies last 2–4 years. The recommended study period is 13 periods, i.e. three years.
At least 150 credits (new curriculum or ops) or 75 courses (old curriculum) are required for the final certificate.
The high school academic year is divided into five periods. The syllabus of each subject is divided into study periods/courses. The period ends with the final week, when the end day of the study periods/courses held in the period is arranged. The closing day includes exams, projects, presentations, visits, etc.
Upper secondary school subjects are divided into compulsory studies for all, national optional and advanced studies that supplement them, and the school's own optional and applied studies.
Compulsory and national studies are evaluated with numbers 4-10. The performance mark is used to evaluate other optional studies.
Studying requires independence
In upper secondary school, the student takes care of planning his own studies. Help is provided by tutors, group supervisors, study counselors and the principal.
Choices should be made carefully and you have to commit to them. It is possible to check the study program in Wilma before the start of the new period.
Success in studies requires regular and active participation in lessons and conscientious homework and course work.
