Turkey finally decided on holding only one definite exam for students seeking university admission, media reports say, amid a debate whether the current exam system is efficient. Thus, students will be relieved of the stress of spending years studying for a number of exams on their path to university from grade school. Under the new system, some universities will also offer admission without exams.
The educational system in Turkey has long focused on a set of exams to determine the accomplishment of students. Nevertheless, the methods of the exams and their frequency have undergone a number of vast changes in a short period, frustrating students. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan recently criticized TEOG, an exam for high school admissions, and announced it would be modified to ease the burden on students. He also hinted at changes on university admission exams.
Media reports say "placement" exams used for school admission will be reduced to one, and students' scores will instead be based on their overall success in grade school and high school. Vocational schools that offer two-year degrees will admit students without the current exam system.
