Yes there is an entrance exam. You probably have the needed basic education as you have already bachelors, but you won't (most likely) be able to skip any studies here, if you want to be MD.
Latest statistic is that 8,1% of applicants got accepted to study medicine in Finnish and 10,3% in Swedish. So asking how the entrance exam is is quite moot point as you have to ace it to get in.

I am answering this not as an expert but I researched the stuffs for myself a while ago, so here it goes as far as I know [I didn't pursue the degree if anyone's interested to know :oops: ]:

You apply with your high school degree. It lasts 6 years. It's name is Lääketiede, Lääketieteen tutkinto-ohjelma, lääketieteen lisensiaatti (6 v). Your bachelor degree will have no bearing at all on admission.

Is there a entrance exam??? How is it???
Of course, there is. Check opintopolku.fi
In Finland, if I want get medicine, what I need??? Recomendation letters of professor's bachelor, Good grades in brazilian High school or good grades in bachelor degree?????
I am sure your high school degree suffices it all, besides amazing entrance exam results, of course. :D

Here's how it looked on 2016. http://mafyvalmennus.fi/images/uploads/ ... sentit.gif For details https://www.mafyvalmennus.fi/laaketiete ... yhteishaku
