PROFICIENCY IN ENGLISH (PIE) EXAM
The aim of the PIE exam is to determine whether the students’ proficiency is at a level which will enable them to follow and actively participate in the courses offered in their faculties.
The PIE exam has two components as a written exam and a speaking exam, which are administered on two consecutive days.
The list of the eligible candidates and the exam rooms are announced on http://sfl.ieu.edu.tr.
Proficiency in English Written Exam: 13.09.2018
The written component of the PIE is designed to assess candidates’ academic reading, academic writing, and listening skills as well as their grammar and vocabulary knowledge.
It is mandatory for candidates to bring a valid picture ID with them (student ID or any form of identification card). Students without a valid ID will not be able to take the exam.
Electronic equipment (mobile phones, etc.) should be turned off and will be collected by the invigilator. All electronic equipment will be returned to the candidates back at the end of the exam. Mobile phones cannot be used even to check the time. Trying to use mobile phones will be considered as an attempt to copy.
Candidates should arrive at the university at least 30 minutes before the exam begins. Candidates are not allowed to leave the exam room in the last 15 minutes.
