In the years when the Vocational Schools started to accept students without examination, it has been felt that the success levels of the students dropped. This failure of the students has been determined through many scientific surveys and through giving up this method, it has been recommended to accept the students to the schools in question after subjecting to examination. This survey has been conducted on the students at Kocaeli University Kocaeli Vocational School by regards of the terms between years 1996-2009. When the grade averages of the students placed by examination during terms 1996-2002 and the grade averages of the students accepted without exam (open admission) during terms 2002-2009 are compared, it has been seen that the students placed by examination were much successful. According to the findings of the survey, the acceptance of students without exam (open admission) to the Vocational Schools should be stopped and acceptance by examination should be started.
