Psychometric Tests Administered Overseas
|Français (registration procedures)|
The Psychometric Entrance Test is administered overseas once a year. Anyone who holds an Israeli identity card or a valid passport is eligible to take the Psychometric Entrance Test. It is essential that you bring to the test the document that you used when registering.
There is no limit to the number of times you may take the Psychometric Entrance Test, and you may take it in consecutive test administrations.
Registering for the Psychometric Entrance Test administered by the National Institute for Testing and Evaluation (NITE) and applying to an educational institution are two separate procedures.
Applying to an educational institution does not constitute registration for the Psychometric Entrance Test; similarly, registering for the test does not constitute application to an educational institution.
It is not necessary to apply to an educational institution in order to take the test. You need to take the test only once, even if you are applying to more than one educational institution; your scores will be forwarded to all the institutions of your choice (see below for more details).
Test Score Validity Period
The Psychometric Entrance Test scores are valid for admission purposes to educational institutions for at least seven (7) years. Therefore, there is no need to delay taking the test until immediately before applying to an institution. For more details, refer to the publications and websites of the institutions.
In most cases, the institutions will use an examinee’s highest score, but NITE recommends that you confirm this with each particular institution.
To register for the test, complete the Registration Form for Overseas Tests. To print the registration form, click here.
