The Cabinet has decided to move daylight saving time -- when clocks are moved forward one hour to make better use of daylight -- one day later because 1.5 million students will take a nationwide exam on the original day, March 27.
The Transition to Higher Education Examination (YGS), the first-round exam of the new university entrance system, will take place on March 27. It is of utmost importance in determining students' chances of being accepted into a university program. Educators had objected to changing to daylight saving time on March 27 because students might experience undue stress due to the change happening on exam day.
According to the Cabinet decision, Turkey will move clocks forward one hour on March 28 at 3:00 a.m. Summer time will end on Oct. 30.
