Registration Procedures - MERAV
Changing Your Test Date
If you are unable to attend on the assigned date, you should immediately notify the NITE Medical Schools Admissions Registration Center. You will not be required to set an alternative date. If you have been allocated a test date and decide not to take the test, you should also notify the appropriate center immediately so that your time slot can be allocated to another examinee.
The medical school faculties have determined that an examinee allocated to either of the assessment centers who declines to take the test at the allocated center may not take the test at the other center, but will be deemed to have withdrawn from the test at all centers in that year.
Payment for the Test
Candidates summoned to the first section of the MERAV center, the Analytical Reasoning Test, will be sent an email with a link to the MERAV website for payment by credit card, along with a username and password. The fee will be charged in one payment.
Candidates summoned to the second section of the MERAV center, the questionnaire and assessment center, will be sent an email with a link to the MERAV website for payment by credit card, along with a username and password. The fee will be charged in one payment. At this stage a candidate can select whether to pay the fee for only the personal/biographical questionnaire, only the assessment center, or both.
Examinees must pay for participation within 72 hours after the summons is sent. An examinee who fails to pay the participation fee within this period will be deemed to have withdrawn from the test during that year.
When registering for online payment, make sure to enter correctly the ID number (Israeli ID card including check digit, or foreign passport number) with which you registered for the course.
The Analytical Reasoning Test and filling out the personal/biographical questionnaire take place in university test halls with standard seating facilities. As at any university, these halls vary in terms of size, seating facilities, etc. (for example, there may be either chairs with writing boards, or tables and chairs). Candidates are required to take the test in the lecture hall to which they are assigned.
During the test, use of the following is strictly prohibited: calculators (including those on wristwatches), clocks (including stopwatches) that make sounds, cellular telephones, other communication devices, laptops and electronic instruments of any kind, dictionaries, books, papers or any other study aids.
There is a tight schedule at the assessment center, and examinees are required to transition rapidly between stations. The staff of the educational institutions, MSR, or NITE will be available to direct and assist examinees.
Air conditioning systems will be in operation throughout the assessment day - please dress accordingly.
Smoking is prohibited in all the examination halls.
Filming at the Assessment Station at MSR (the Israel Center for Medical Simulation)
Video cameras are installed at a number of the assessment stations at MSR to record the proceedings. At the beginning of the assessment day examinees assigned to MSR will be required to sign a consent form for filming. All film clips will remain confidential and will be used only for purposes of instruction and research. The clips will not be used as part of the process of accepting or rejecting candidates.
