All programs require Graduate Exam scores. To apply for graduate programs, the applicants must have ALES or GRE General exam results that meet the minimum criteria of the programs. Click Program Requirements to check the exam types and minimum scores of the graduate exams designated by departments.
* ALES scores are valid for 5 years following the announcement of exam results.
*GRE certificate is valid for 5 years.
Therefore, the exam results must be valid as of the date of application. Applicants who were registered in a graduate program at METU with no more than one semester break can apply to the graduate programs with ALES scores that they submitted before. This exception is only valid if the old ALES score of the applicant meet the minimum criteria of the program requirements. Those applicants do not need to take the ALES exams again.
* For the application, the photocopy or the Internet print of the exam scores can be uploaded to the online application system.
