In case of a common learning deficiency or lack of learning throughout the student, class and school, a feedback will be given to the students in order to compensate for these losses and deficiencies. The student will see their scores out of 100 through the e-School system.
The exams on Turkish, Turkish language and literature and foreign language courses will be held as written and practical in two stages. Written exams will be held first and practical exams will be held second for these courses in order to measure listening and speaking skills, with enough time allocated for each student.
Practical exams will be held to measure listening and speaking skills and graded separately.
