Notes for Turkey

Turkish grading scales vary significantly from institution to institution, but GPA requirements for good standing are fairly consistent. At the bachelor’s level, students with a GPA between 3 and 3.5 (iyi – or good) graduate with Honours, while students with a 3.5 or higher graduate with High Honours. At the graduate level, students must maintain a GPA of 3 to remain in good standing. Consult the transcript legend to see what percentage marks are required for each of iyi, iyi-Pekiyi, and Pekiyi.
