The teacher should evaluate completed studies well before the next opportunity to complete or register for them, but no later than within one month from the date of completion. In the period between 1 June and 31 August, the teacher may evaluate completed studies within more than one month from the date of completion.
The teacher records completed studies in the student information system (Sisu) and confirms them within one month of the evaluation of your completed study. Evaluations that require separate recording (e.g. traineeships) are handled by University Services. Information on completed studies are recorded in the student information system within one month of their evaluation, unless there are special circumstances that prevent this.
If at least five students completed the same studies at the same time, you will receive information from the electronic information system (Sisu) concerning the grade and also the grade distribution.
The results of the Finnish specialist examination in medicine and dentistry shall be announced within six weeks of the examination.
How can I get information on the grading principles?
As a student you have the right to know how grading principles have been applied to your performance.
Your examination papers and related notes may not be disclosed to third parties or published without your permission. Your examination papers may not be used for teaching and research purposes without your permission if you can be identified on the basis of the answers.
In connection with the announcement of results at the latest, the examiner shall inform the students where the examination papers will be retained, and where and when the students may access their graded papers. Students have the right to receive a copy of their examination paper at their own expense.
