Please check the following updated conditions by YÖK (Turkish Higher Education Council) about language exams and exam locations that can be accepted:

a) Acceptable Exams: IELTS, TOEFL-PBT and TOEFL-CBT exams are not accepted by YÖK any more. Thus, these exams will not be valid for ETM registrations.
