The Proficiency exam is a multiple choice exam that aims to determine the use of language and reading skills of the student.  The exam serves as a tool to determine both the English level and whether or not the student is eligible to take the BİLET Stage 2 exam.  The exam is made up of 50 multiple choice questions (20 reading and 30 use of language) and two short paragraph writing tasks.     

Students that receive a grade of 45 and above are eligible to take the BİLET Stage 2 exam.


The BİLET Stage 2 exam is an exemption exam that is held over two days and measures speaking, reading, and writing skills. 

Students receiving a grade of 60 and above from the BİLET Stage 2 exam are eligible to begin their undergraduate studies.  Students that receive a grade below 60 will be placed in the Preparatory Program.  

Which level within the Preparatory Program a student will begin at is determined according to the grade they received from the BİLET Stage 1 exam.
