Optional Testing

Standardized Test Scores

Mesarya Technical University is Test Optional.

Mesarya has been a national leader in the test-optional movement for international students since its inception. In October 2018, the faculty voted to make standardized testing, such as the SAT, SAT Subject Tests, the ACT (USA system), GCE ‘’A’’ Level (UK system), and YKS (Turkish system) optional for all international students applying to Mesarya.

International Students who apply for admission will not be required to submit ACT or SAT or SAT Subject test or GCE ‘’A’’ Level and YKS scores with the application. The Admissions staff will focus on other important indicators—overall high school performance, character, determination, and love of learning. MTU became test optional with the 2020-21 application cycle.

Why test optional?

Test scores are just one of the many factors that we will take into consideration as we get to know you better. While we are test optional, we encourage international applicants for admission to submit their test scores if they feel the scores are an accurate representation of their potential for success at MTU. While the SAT test may have changed, MTU’s commitment to its test-optional policy remains.

If English is neither the native language nor the primary language of secondary school instruction, then results of an English-proficiency test like the TOEFL or IELTS or Password is required.

Our Admission Committee is familiar with various education systems around the world.  In reviewing your application, we consider grades, standardized test scores, comprehensive exam predictions or results, essays, recommendations, independent work, the quality of your current academic program and your achievements outside the classroom. No one aspect will determine our decision; instead, we look at the sum total of your experiences.

Our small classes, open curriculum and singular focus on undergraduate education ensure that exceptional professors engage daily with talented, curious students, equipping them for leadership in an increasingly global and complex world.
