Immersion in Finland has grown in popularity since its start in 1987 in Vaasa/Vasa. Much of the popularity depends on the fact that immersion students learn their L2 effectively without losing their L1 skills or skills in other school subjects. Despite the positive effects of immersion there are still questions regarding how students manage higher education after immersion. In this article I will give a quantitative analysis of immersion students in the matriculation examination by focusing on the tests they participated in and the grades they received.
