The exam is administered twice in every year. It starts with written exams on the 2nd monday of May and November. Each written exam (quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, electromagnetic theory, analytical mechanics, mathemetical methods in physics and miscellaneous questions) is held in a different session during that week. An oral exam takes place in the succeeding week.
The exam is administered according to the rules set by the rules and regulations governing the graduate studies (Turkish version is binding).
