Entrance Examination:

Mon the 18th of May 2020 at 14.00-17.00

The entrance exam will be held as an electronic exam on the online platform Moodle on Monday, 18 May 2020 at 14.00–17.00. Further information and instructions for taking the exam will be sent to registered applicants in the second week of May (week 20).

You should register for the entrance examination by the 30th of April 2019 through the Summer University exam calendar. The examination registration is now closed.

The exact classroom for the exam will be informed on the same site later. The examination will be arranged at the Oulu University. Entrance exam will be charged separately from the Basic Studies.

The entrance examination is a written exam and consists of two or three different writing tasks of varying length (approx. 300–500 words). The examination is in English. The maximum number of points in the written examination is 40. The entrance examination is based on reading materials delivered in the beginning of the exam. The materials may include short scientific texts, fiction, newspaper or magazine articles, or visual materials. The materials may pertain to language studies, language learning, and the cultures and literature of the Anglophone world.

The aim of the entrance examination is to test the applicant’s ability to grasp the content presented in the reading materials and accordingly apply it in the writing tasks. To be considered for admission, the applicant must score at least 50 % of the available points in each of the written tasks. If the applicant leaves a blank paper for any of the tasks, other tasks will not be evaluated even if they contain answers.

The assessment of the written tasks will focus on the following issues:

  • content – the relevance and accuracy of the answers  
  • language – the grasp of vocabulary and grammatical precision, the ability to write clearly, fluently and flawlessly  
  • structure and organization – the logical presentation and overall coherence of the argumentation
