Work at the Matriculation Examination Board 

The matriculation examination is continuously developed in parallel with the National Core Curriculum for General Upper Secondary Education. The development, execution and assessment of the examination required precision, adherence to a strict schedule, and continuous training. The Board members and civil service employees themselves also provide training related to the matriculation examination. 
The matriculation examination is constantly subject to a great deal of public interest. We actively communicate with the public through the media, our website and social media, and produce statistics related to the matriculation examination for, for example, researchers. Our key stakeholders include upper secondary schools, education organisers, researchers, various organisations, among others.
