ENGLISH PROFICIENCY EXAM PREPARATION

Turkish students as well as foreign students wishing to apply to undergraduate degree programs taught in English at Turkish universities must meet English language proficiency requirements either by taking the TOEFL or IELTS exams or by sitting for English language proficiency exams administered locally by the university. TOEFL and IELTS score requirements for Turkish universities may be found here.

However, most Turkish students find it more convenient to sit for the university English placement and proficiency exams. 

While some universities have just one proficiency exam, other universities initially use a first-stage placement exam to screen students that can sit for the second-stage proficiency exam.

PLACEMENT AND PROFICIENCY EXAMS GENERALLY TEST THE FOLLOWING LANGUAGE SKILLS USING QUESTIONS IN DIFFERENT FORMATS:

  • USE OF ENGLISH / GRAMMAR (FILL IN THE BLANK / MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS)

  • READING (MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS)

  • LISTENING: (FILL IN THE BLANK MULTIPLE CHOICE / TRUE OR FALSE / MATCHING QUESTIONS
