Evaluate your yki test result for citizenship

Post by Nepfin » Sun Apr 03, 2016 8:38 pm

Provisions covering language skills required to acquire Finnish citizenship are laid down in the Nationality Act (359/2003).

Acquisition of Finnish citizenship requires at least satisfactory oral and written skills in the Finnish or Swedish language. The easiest way to demonstrate such skills is to complete a general language proficiency test to attain the National Certificate of Language Proficiency at intermediate level. This means that you have to have at least a skill level three on one of the following subtest combinations:

Speaking (3) and writing (3)
OR

Listening comprehension (3) and writing (3)
OR

Reading comprehension (3) and speaking (3)

Notice that you must attend the entire test to have a certificate on your language proficiency and that the test is always performed during one day. Nevertheless, you can prove that you have the required combination with more than one certificate (certificates issued after 1 January 2012).

Did you fail some part of the exam? I'm not sure what could be confusing you otherwise, and your English a bit bad. I kind of guess you have to pass the exam, but also have at least one of the combinations on your list checked.

You seem to have problem with understanding text in general.
Your test result should be enough for the application. However, the language proficiency is not the only condition for obtaining citizenship, the hardest part is to have lived in Finland long enough (5 years, usually).

Nepfin, with these results you can apply for a citizenship.
In turn, could you tell me how long did it take in your case for exam organizer to check you exam work? OPH states that they will check it within 2 months, but I know that they usually make it faster. I took YKI svenska recently and time for me is important. Thanks in advance!
