No change in exam fees
There was no change in YKS fees this year. A fee of 115 lira was determined for each of the TYT, AYT and YDT sessions. Candidates who do not apply within the deadline will be able to apply late on March 27-April 3. It was decided that the additional fees of 50 percent received from additional applications would not be collected this year.
From today until March 23, candidates who apply to YKS but do not mark the options for the relevant sessions because they do not want to enter AYT or YDT, will be able to apply to enter these sessions on the late application days and complete their application by paying the late application exam fee. Candidates who apply for any session of YKS and pay the exam fee between these dates will not be able to change their registered residence information in the system on late application days.
Who will apply?
All candidates who will be placed in higher education programs as a result of the central placement to be made by ÖSYM in the 2023-2024 academic year (including those who have the right to pass without examination through TÜBİTAK competitions) or the special talent exam to be held by the relevant higher education institutions, will have to apply to the 2023-YKS exam and attend the relevant session of the exam. .
