General Information

Due to the ongoing effects of the Coronavirus, the BİLET Stage 1 and BİLET Stage 2 exams might be given online. The final decision will be taken in light of circumstances closer to the exam date and shared with the students in advance.

Students will need the following equipment ready in the event of an online BİLET 1 or BİLET 2 exam:

  • Internet connection
  • A desktop or laptop computer with a camera
  • A mobile phone with a camera
  • A microphone
  • Video conference application (The details about which application needs to be downloaded will be shared prior to the exam date.)
  • A room set up so that the student can work on the computer with the phone filming them and the computer screen from behind


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). 

Students that receive a grade of 34 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.
