Millions of Turkish students to start winter break
Nearly 18 million Turkish students will receive their mid-term report cards and began a two-week winter break on Jan. 17.
The mid-term holiday will end on Feb. 3.
The two-week summer break is set to reduce traffic congestion in Turkey, particularly in Istanbul, which is among the most congested cities in the world.
However, there will be a short break between 6-10 April 2019.
Higher Education Institutions Examination (YKS) for university entrance will be held on June 20-21, after the end of the second semester.
The school year will be completed on June 19 and the 11-week-long summer break will begin.
