Registration Procedures

After Registering

Test Notification

You will receive email confirmation when the Registration Center has processed your online application. This confirmation will be sent to the email address you provided.

It is your responsibility to make sure that all the information in the notification you receive is accurate (name, ID/passport number, test date and test language). If there are any errors, correct them immediately by logging onto the website or by calling the Registration Center.

Once registration is closed, details of the test date and location you have been assigned will be sent by email or mailed to the address you provided on your form. You may also log on to the website to view them.

Changing Your Test Location

If you wish to change your test location, you may do so for about a week after you receive your assigned date and location, as long as there is room available. Changes can be made by logging on to the website or by calling the Registration Center.

Changing Your Test Date

If you wish to change your test date after you have registered, you may do so by logging onto the NITE website or by contacting the Registration Center by phone.

 

  • If your request reaches the Registration Center before the registration deadline for the test administration that you originally requested, it can be accommodated at no extra charge.
  • A change of test date can only be made beginning one week after the test date that you were originally assigned. This will entail a service charge of approximately 18% of the current test fee.
  • If you have special accommodations approved for a particular test date, you will have to request accommodations for the alternative date you wish to be tested on. To do this you must complete the reapplication questionnaire and submit it to the Special Accommodations Center according to the procedures for submitting a request for accommodations. Further information is available here.

 

Canceling Registration

If you wish to cancel your registration for the test, you may do so by logging onto the NITE website, or by contacting the Registration Center by email, fax, or registered mail. Your test fee will be reimbursed after a service charge has been deducted, as prescribed by law. In general, unless otherwise specified by law, if your cancellation request is received before the registration deadline for the relevant test administration, the service charge is approximately 15% of the test fee. If your cancellation request is received after the registration deadline, the service charge is approximately 30% of the test fee.

 

Reporting Test Scores

Reporting Test Scores to the Educational Institutions

Your scores will be reported directly to Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Bar-Ilan University, Haifa University, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Tel-Aviv University and the Technion within 45 days of the test date. Your scores will also be reported to the other institutions that you indicated on the registration form. The institutions to which NITE can report scores are listed here. NITE does not report test scores to educational institutions other than those listed, or those specified on your registration form. All of the institutions guarantee that the scores will be used solely for their own admissions purposes. The educational institutions process candidates’ applications on the basis of the scores reported directly to them by NITE. Candidates cannot report their scores themselves.

Reporting Test Scores to the Examinee

Within 45 days of the test administration, around the same time the scores are reported to the institutions, your scores will be available on the NITE website. To access your scores, you will need: ID number or foreign passport number (with which you registered for the test) and your personal password. Your scores will also be emailed to you. If you specified that you did not want your scores reported by email, you will receive them only by mail.

Please note the following clarifications before contacting NITE with regard to your scores:

  • All scores for examinees tested on a particular test date are calculated on the same day and no individual score can be issued in advance of this date.
  • NITE does not release test scores by telephone or fax.
  • An additional copy of test results can be mailed to examinees at no extra charge for a period of three months following the test administration.
  • NITE does not commit to reporting scores to institutions or examinees before the registration deadline for the next test date.

 

Requests for Changes to Score Reporting

If, after registration, you wish your scores to be reported to different institutions from those indicated during registration, or wish to stop your scores from being reported to one or more of the institutions, or wish to avoid receiving them via email, you may request this via NITE’s website or by sending an email or fax to the Scoring Department. There is no fee for this service. It is your responsibility to ensure that you receive written confirmation of the request from the Scoring Department.

Requests for Reevaluation of the Test Answer Sheet

Test answer sheets are read by an optical scanner. This method is extremely accurate. Nevertheless, you have the right to request that your answer sheet be reevaluated. The reevaluation is conducted manually. The reevaluation does not include a reassessment of the writing task, but only verifies that all of the scoring details were recorded accurately.

A fee is charged for this procedure. However, if it is discovered that an error has indeed occurred in reading the answer sheet, this fee will be refunded.

A request for reevaluation can be submitted via the website, or by contacting the Scoring Department by fax or regular mail. You are entitled to request a reevaluation for up to three months after the test date. The results of the reevaluation will be sent to you seven working days after receipt of the request and payment.

 

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, in part, because concerns about the test administration can only be investigated in close proximity to the event.

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

 

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 there is doubt as to the reliability of any test or score, for any reason, an 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 an examinee is retested will NITE decide 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.

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 and to summons the examinee 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).
