Fewer than 83,000 people took a language exam last year, and only 60,000 obtained a certificate, reports Eduline, citing data from the Language Examination Accreditation Department (NYAK) of the Education Office. 

According to statistics, between 2013 and 2019, 120,000-135,000 people took a language exam every year. By 2020, this number had dropped to just over 86,000. 

Due to the epidemic, the government ordered a language exam amnesty in 2021 and 2022, so even those who did not obtain the necessary language exam certificate received their diplomas (previously, those who passed their university exams but not the language exam were not awarded a graduation certificate). 

However, the number of language exam takers has not returned to its previous level. In 2021, 85,504 passed, and only 82,836 in 2022.
