When will the school close?

18 million primary, secondary and high school students began face-to-face education this semester on September 6th. Two intermittent vacations were implemented by the Ministry of National Education so that students could rest during the semester. The first semester break was held between 15-19 November.

After the midterm break, the first term in schools ends on Friday, January 21st. Students received their report cards with success grades and completed the semester break between January 24 and February 4. Re-education activities at the school begin on January 7, when the second semester break is held between April 11-15.

Summer vacation start date

According to the calendar published by the Ministry of National Education, the 2021-2022 academic year will end on Friday, June 17 and summer vacation will begin.

Has the summer vacation been extended, how long will it last?

Previously, the duration of summer vacations was different due to the epidemic. As the entire 2021-2022 academic year is held face to face, there will be no change during the summer vacation period this semester. The summer vacation, which begins June 17, lasts 90 days.

Report card will be printed!

The Ministry of National Education has opened report cards for digital access to avoid traffic jams at schools during the epidemic. Families and children who wish to do so receive their report card in print from the school administration. Report card distribution will be held in the classroom environment on Friday, June 17th. In addition to the report card, students will receive a certificate of appreciation and appreciation, also known as a certificate of achievement.


According to the Secondary Education Institutions Regulation of the Ministry of National Education, students are entitled to a certificate of appreciation based on their grade point average. Students who have an average grade point average of between 70 and 84.99 will receive a certificate of appreciation, and a certificate of appreciation of 85 and above.

2021-2022 Class will fail?

During the epidemic, which went through an extraordinary process, the Ministry of National Education took a critical decision and canceled the classroom stay. When education and training activities returned to normal, measurement and evaluation applications were conducted entirely at the school. This semester will be decided according to the rules of failing and passing.

The state of success and absence affect the students passing the class. The limit of unwanted absenteeism in high school is 10 days and in secondary school 20 days. Students who cross this threshold in 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grades of high school are subject to recurrence. In secondary school, the branch teacher board decides that students will pass the class.

After examination in the second semester, students with a year-end achievement score of less than 45 in any course at the secondary school level may repeat the year. In this case, the last word in case of absence belongs to the branch teacher board. In high school, students who fail the year-end average of 50 and fail 3 courses repeat the class.

The Ministry of National Education will conduct both the IOKBS, also known as the Scholarship Examination and the High School Entrance Exam (LGS) in 2022.
