Brief description of entry evaluation required

Academic exam is the first step of the Boys and Girls Campuses in NUN Schools, which serves as a Middle and High School.In the academic exams, which are made in particular dates, students are evaluated in terms of the capability of analysis and synthesis, reading comprehension, expressing thoughts with their own words, reading of the information given in graphics, table, maps, commenting and deducing. For this reason, the number of multiple choice questions is very low. The exam language is Turkish but an exam in English is made in the exceptional cases that candidate student's mother tongue is not Turkish. If the students showed the expected success in the academic exam, Counseling Department of NUN Schools invites the candidate student and their parent to be acquainted with them more closely. The candidate students gain the right to be registered in the school when this process ends with a positive result.
