You sign up as absent in the university for the first year.

Contact JAMK's international student office and explain the situation. If they insist that you cannot revert your enrollment for the first year, then well.. you learn a valuable lesson and move on. As far as I know, if you sign up as "Attending" and don't actually go to school, you don't lose your place of study. You can start in the following year as normal with the students who are starting on that year.

The only downside will be losing first year's tuition fees and losing one year from your "study right" (opiskeluoikeus) years, which I think are 5 years for AMKs if I recall correctly. So if you don't have anymore hiccups in the future, you'll still have 4 years of "study right".

Anyway, the key point here is to talk to your JAMK about this.
Every f*cking case is unique. You can't measure the result of your application based on arbitrary anecdotes online. Stop being a moron!
