This page provides details of the registration process for the AMIRAM Test. You should read all of the information carefully.

Registration and payment

You must register and pay at the educational institution where you will be taking the test.

NITE reserves the right to pursue any course of action it deems appropriate in cases where it suspects that an examinee has registered for the test for a purpose other than that for which the test was designed and/or because of external motivations.

It is forbidden to register for the test in order to infringe on NITE’s proprietary rights. This includes copying, disclosing, or conveying test items, whether to provide instruction and preparation for the test or for any other purpose.

Requesting a reevaluation of your test

There is a service charge for reevaluation, but if the reevaluation confirms that an error occurred, this charge will be fully refunded. For details, contact the Scoring Department or download the payment form for a test reevaluation from the NITE website.

Summons for retesting

During the scoring process, routine monitoring procedures are implemented to ensure that the examinees’ scores accurately reflect their ability. In certain cases, NITE may encounter difficulties in evaluating a test because of an irregular or inconsistent test score or as the result of technical problems. In the event of any doubt as to a test score’s reliability, for any test and for any reason, including those mentioned above, an examinee may be summoned to retake the test at NITE’s offices in Jerusalem. The examinee’s test score will be withheld until all doubts as to its validity have been removed. Only after an examinee is retested will NITE decide how to proceed. Examinees usually receive a written summons for retesting within six weeks of the test date; however, a summons may also be issued at a later date.

In addition, in every case in which information discovered by or brought to the attention of NITE casts doubt for any reason upon the reliability of any score reported to an examinee (usually as the result of evidence uncovered during subsequent tests taken by the examinee, or information provided to NITE by external sources, the majority of which are institutions of higher education), NITE reserves the right - during every test administration date - to freeze or disqualify that score. In that event, the examinee will be summoned to a retest to clarify the matter (and, when relevant, to notify the institutions of higher education that the score which NITE originally reported to them has been disqualified).

Furthermore, NITE will be permitted to prohibit any examinee who has cheated and/or copied and/or attempted to receive an illegal score from taking any of the tests it administers for a period of 12 months.
