A popular magazine in America rated Finland as the best country in the world.

I ******* hate college. 4 courses is minimum in my school (not sure about other colleges in Finland) and if you don't pass them all, you should be expelled. This is my schedule for this period (little explanation about subjects: ÄI02 is Finnish, RU04 is Swedish, MU03 is music and FI01 is philosophy) and I've already failed Finnish course and I'm sure I'm not going to pass Swedish. Finnish school system may sound pretty good, but for me it's horrible. I am too slow learning those things. But I have decided to change to vocational school since it is little bit easier to pass.

I don't care if you don't care, I just wanted to tell this to someone

TL;DR: I don't like Finnish school system and I am failure.

That is actually a really good point. No offense to you, but people like you who are below their inflated average are forced to attended vocational schools and are removed from the statistics with some sort of technicality.
#64 to #34 - Womens Study Major (03/22/2013) [-]
What you mean if you don't pass them all, you should be explled? It is true that the total minium course number is 75 courses, however this is divided into your 3 years in the college.
#68 to #64 - kiksi (03/22/2013) [-]
There should be selected at least 4 courses for one period. If you don't pass all the 4 courses in period, the presence obligation (not sure what it is in English but in Finnish this thing is called läsnäolovelvollisuus) is not fulfilled and you should get some kind of notification about it. And if this happens too many times, then you should be expelled since they see it as you don't go to school enough and you're not interested about the whole thing. I don't know how many notifications you need before they can expel you, but I know one guy who got kicked out this year because of the amount of his absence.

As a Finn, I'd like to make a few points regarding education in Finland:

1. The Finnish educational system is not superior to that of other countries. We simply get less fructose as kids (example: the glucose-fructose-syrope in Coke destroys the brain).

2. Teachers in FInland are not esteemed - in fact, doctors and lawyers pity teachers for they extremely low salaries and the low-tier social status that follows.

3. We have a lot of swear-words. Feeling bad? Perkele vittu saatana jumalauta helvetin kusipäät ei kullin kyrpä.

Honestly, if we started to be more like Finland all of a sudden and stopped giving out homework, and giving more free-time, our failure rate would rise higher than it already is. Not only that but they've failed to mention that most European schools have longer school days, some going as long as till 5PM. Also, I'm not sure, but i think the reason why they do better with little homework and more free-time is because they don't need help when it comes to learning a subject. I know several students in my classes that do all their homework and still manage to get a D on a test while others that rarely do any, get A's because they're well learners.

it's not like we are better students here in Finland because we get less homework. Actually the amount of homework in high school is moderately high. but here in Finland the appreciation towards education is much higher than in almost any country compared (lets forget the asians). When it comes to the finals in my school, all my friends (me included) are studying like months before the actual exam because we WANT to be in the top 5% of the students who get the best score (Laudatur).

and to be honest, I think it's a bad education system if the students do not have enough time for themselves. If they're not motivated enough, well **** , it's their problem if they don't want to be employed or something that they dreamed of becoming.

I remember when my teacher at high school complained than we needed to study more at home. It only takes 30 minutes to repeat my 50 minute lesson, she said.
Bitch, I have 13 other subjects and I would like to have a life outside school too.

im english but started school in Finland when i was 8 and Yes there is still homework but it is a very good school system but my school was very racsist towards me
User avatar #126 - bounod (03/22/2013) [-]
The claim that there is no homework from school in Finland is total bs. From what I remmeber from school is that the homework took some 2-3 hours on school days. If we had to write essays, it could have taken some 4 extra hour for one. These are rough estimates since the amount of homework varied between days and depending schooling level.
