July 2020 Proficiency Exam
It was previously announced that the proficiency exam that had been planned for June 8-10, 2020 on the usual (pre-pandemic) academic calendar would be held online on July 25-27, 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The online Proficiency Exam is going to be administered in a single session on July 27, 2020, and it is going to include the Language Comprehension, Reading Comprehension, Listening and Writing parts. This online session will contain fewer questions and it will be shorter in duration in comparison to the previous proficiency exams.
As per the ITU Online and Offline Exam Execution Guidelines and the decision by the ITU Rectorate, this exam can only be taken on a computer with a working camera and microphone through Google Chrome. (It cannot be taken on a tablet or a phone.) The exam will be repeated on the same platform with the same format on July 29, 2020 for the students who have not entered the initial exam or have not been able to complete it. Only the students who have not entered the exam on July 27 or those who have been found to have technical problems with it will be able to take the exam on July 29.
You can find the information about the software that will be used for the exam through this link. You are strongly recommended to check whether the computer you will take the exam on meets the requirements through this link.
The students who refuse to grant the permissions required by the browser extension that will be used during the exam can take a one-to-one online exam. The one-to-one online exam will be administered on a different platform that will be determined later, and it will include the Language Comprehension, Reading Comprehension, Listening and Writing parts. In this exam, the students will see the questions on the screen and listen to the listening section through their computer under the supervision of a lecturer, and the answers they have typed/chosen will be recorded by the system. The date of the one-to-one online exam will be announced later.
As per the announcement by the Council of Higher Education, the students who don't have access to digital media can be provided with access to such resources through their local public institutions - primarily local universities - and Ministry of Education facilities.
