UUYOS, coordinated by Uludag University, is the simple entrance exam for admission to over
seventy public Universities in Turkey. Its equivalent in Nigeria is the UTME which is valid for 1
year but UUYOS is valid for 2 years. It is a 120-minute exam of 80 objective questions in Maths,
English Language and General Knowledge where intelligence and time management are
assessed. It is an entrance exam for Undergraduate and Vocational admission to the Turkish
Government Universities. For a link to the Universities that accept UUYOS, visit:
MINIMUM QUALIFICATION SCORES
Undergraduate (4 years) ------- 50/80
Undergraduate (6 years Medicine) ----- 70/80
Vocational Studies (2 years) -------------- 30/80
NB: We help our students in their applications to selectively pick courses so that no one goes
without an admission; at least, a Vocational Course. We also give tutorials on UUYOS for 1
month for N50, 000 plus materials. Material alone costs N15, 000 flat in case of busy applicants
who cannot take tutorials.
Since Turkey is not an English-speaking country, the students are to take a preliminary course
on the Turkish Language before their choice courses. The advantages of taking Turkish and
understanding is cannot be over-emphasized. Once an international student can speak Turkish,
he/she will be able to enjoy the privileges of a Turkish citizen. Language is cultural; once you
understand a language, you have understood the people, their customs, traditions, history and
POSSIBLE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
1. Turkey is a Muslim-dominated country; is there no religious discrimination in Turkey?
How safe is it for Christians to be in Turkey? Turkey is neither European nor Asian.
Turkey’s formal capital was in Istanbul and Istanbul is in Europe but the capital was
later moved to Ankara (still the current capital) which is located in between Europe and
Asia. So, Turkey is in between Europe and Asia and people easily troop in from the two
continents which means Turkey is a free state where you can practice whatever religion
you so wish to practice. Follow this link and watch this video by Nigerian students in
