Changes since last year

We have the same problems as our Finnish colleagues: difficulties to have double degree (MD or DDS) because University asks the same level admission exam as the high-school graduates. No privileges for OMFS.

The last couple of years we had continues talking with our University and Ministry authorities, that this system needs to be changed, but until now, we havent got success.
