Registration for Examinees Taking the YAEL

Following the Psychometric Entrance Test

Inquiries and Complaints

Any complaint regarding the test should be addressed in writing to the Customer Relations Bureau via the form available on the website, or by fax or mail within one week of the test date. A complaint received later than this will not be processed. Among other reasons, this is because concerns about the test administration can only be investigated in close proximity to the event.

All correspondence with NITE should specify your name, the ID or foreign passport number with which you registered for the test, type of test and test date.


Compromising the Integrity of the Test and Cheating

NITE views very seriously any attempt to compromise the integrity of its tests, including any behavior that infringes on the confidentiality of the test or the use of its results. We also view very seriously any attempt to obtain a score by illegal means, such as copying during the test or impersonating someone else. Among other things, cheating may lead to situations in which unsuitable candidates are accepted, sometimes even at the expense of candidates who are better qualified for the study program in question. The National Institute for Testing and Evaluation has methods for detecting cheating and attempts to compromise test integrity, and reserves the right to react to such situations using all means at its disposal and at its discretion. These may include:

  1. Invalidating the test
  2. Prohibiting an examinee from taking any test administered by NITE for a period of 12 months
  3. Filing a civil suit
  4. Submitting a complaint to university or college disciplinary committees

Please note: Impersonating another person (such as sending someone to take the test in your place) is a criminal offense. If someone is suspected of committing such an offense, a complaint will be filed with the police and with university disciplinary committees.


Summons for Retesting

During the scoring process, NITE conducts routine checks to ensure that each examinee’s scores accurately reflect his or her ability. One such procedure is comparison of the examinees’ answer sheets. Sometimes these procedures indicate problems such as irregular or inconsistent test results or technical problems.

In the event that the reliability of any test or score is in doubt for any reason, the examinee will be summoned to retake the test at NITE’s offices in Jerusalem, and his or her test scores will be withheld until the matter has been resolved. Only after the examinee is retested will NITE make a decision how to proceed.

A written summons for retesting is generally sent to such examinees within six weeks of the test date; however, it may also be issued at a later date.

Furthermore, in any case where additional information of any kind is discovered or brought to NITE’s attention, which casts doubt on the reliability of any score issued to an examinee, including data relating to subsequent tests taken by the same examinee, and information conveyed to NITE by third parties, including educational institutions, NITE reserves the right to withhold or annul the said score at any time and to summon the examinee for reexamination and investigation (and, if relevant, to inform the educational institutions to which the score was previously reported that it has been annulled).

In addition, in response to any attempt at cheating, copying, or receiving a score through illegal means, NITE has the authority to prohibit the examinee from taking any test it administers for a period of 12 months.
