The YÖS Examination is an entrance examination for foreign students wishing to study in higher education institutions in Turkey [1]

This examination was set and administered by the Student Selection and Placement Centre (ÖSYM) until 2010 when universities began conducting their own versions of the exam.[2] The results of this exam apply only for students wishing to enrol in undergraduate programmes. Students presently enrolled in undergraduate programmes who seek a transfer, and also those who wish to follow postgraduate programmes should apply directly to the institutions of their choice.

The YÖS Examination is composed of two tests:

  1. The “Basic Learning Skills Test” assesses abstract reasoning. The questions have a minimal dependence on language, but explanations are given in Turkish and English. This section includes 80 questions It takes 90-135 minutes.
  2. The “Turkish Language Proficiency Test” assesses the applicant’s comprehension of written Turkish. The Turkish test takes 60 minutes. It is only used to decide whether a candidate who has been accepted into a programme conducted in Turkish can immediately commence that programme or not.
