    Are you sure it starts with 'to', not 'it'? The obvious choice is 'It turned out that...'

    Yes, it starts with 'to'. But perhaps it's a mistake?
    This sentence appears in a FCE test.

    If you have any more problems, feel free to ask. Good luck with the exam- when are you planning on taking it?
