What is entrance exam? How much score I need?

"Entrance" this word is a popular word in Finland. To entry in somewhere is entrance. So from the point of view of Bangladesh student Entrance exam is one kind of admission test only. In Finland there is no tuition fee, so they obviously want that they should give the chance to meritorious students, for that they start entrance exam. But Don't be anxious about that easy admission test. It is possible to get chance for study here in Finland if you get only 50 out of 100 marks in that entrance/admission test. So start to prepare yourself for that exam.

Total cost to come in Finland

All of us are anxious about the cost to come in Finland. But you will be glade to know that total cost to come in Finland not more than 2 lac Bangladeshi Taka. Here I am describing the cost:

1. Application no cost
2. Sending documents 2000/=
3. Entrance Exam registration 4000/=
4. Health Insurance 30,000/=
5. Visa application fee 10,000/=
5. India trip for submitting visa application 10,000/=
7. India trip for collecting visa stamp 10,000/=
8. plane fare to come Finland 65,000/=

In which semester you should apply?

As far as I know it is possible to take admission in Finland in two individual semester, Spring and Autumn. Application procedure for spring starts from 1st September and For autumn it is January. But every year in spring semester they allow lowest number of student and only two or three university admit student from the outside of Finland. So I recommend Autumn semester for Bangladeshi students. Even some time they do not arrange entrance exam /admission test in Dhaka for spring semester, but always they arrange entrance exam /admission test in Dhaka for Autumn semester. So take decision yourself that which semester would be good for you.
