According to Statistics Finland's education statistics, 2.4 per cent of completers of comprehensive school aged under 18, or close on 1,400 pupils, did not continue in education in 2019. Altogether 54 per cent continued in upper secondary general education, 40 per cent in vocational education, one per cent in additional education of basic education (10-grade) and two per cent in guidance or preparatory education. Seventy per cent of new passers of the matriculation examination in spring did not continue studies leading to a qualification or degree in the year of the matriculation examination. The share of new passers of the matriculation examination left outside further studies has grown over 12 years.

Description: These statistics describe entrances and admissions to post-comprehensive school education leading to a qualification or degree, and placement in further education of comprehensive school leavers and passers of the matriculation examination immediately after completing the qualification. The statistics contain data on the numbers of applicants and entrants to education and on their previous education, as well as on students having applied simultaneously to different sectors of education. These data have been produced annually since the 1990s. In accordance with the Statistics Act, the personal data from which these statistics are compiled are confidential. As a rule, the statistics produced from them are public.
