Instructions for
Submitting a Request

The deadline for submitting an application and the accompanying documents is the same as the registration deadline for your chosen test.

Processing and checking the documents can take up to 25 working days.

If you submit your application less than a month before the deadline, you will almost certainly not have sufficient time to submit additional documents, an appeal, or a reevaluation request.

Therefore we recommend that you submit the application and accompanying documents well in advance, at least two months before the registration deadline.

Who is eligible to submit an application for special accommodations?

Applicants with a disability (medical, physical, or psychiatric; learning disability; or attention deficit disorder) which in their opinion justifies special test accommodations, may submit an application to NITE for special test accommodations. Applicants with a physical condition that prevents them from sitting the test in a normal classroom with chairs with writing tablets (e.g. advanced pregnancy, severe obesity, wheelchair users, etc.) may also submit an application for special accommodation.

If the application does not follow the instructions or meet the criteria for special accommodations, it is liable to be rejected, so please read the instructions carefully and follow them precisely.

 

Stage 1 - general instructions for submitting a request for special test accommodations

1. Registering for the test - in order to apply for special test accommodations, you must be registered for the test.
For every test, a test with special accommodations is given either on the same date or during the following three weeks. Registration is via the NITE website (Registration for the Psychometric Entrance Test/Registration for other tests) or by the appropriate pen-and-paper form for each test (see the Registration Procedures page on the website).

2. Applicant Questionnaire - To apply for special test accommodations, fill out the Applicant Questionnaire. Requests without the questionnaire will not be considered.

3. Accompanying Documents - Every application must be accompanied by the relevant documents as described below. All the documents must be sent to NITE by the registration deadline for the test. We regret that documents received after the deadline and documents sent by fax cannot be considered. Documents submitted will not be returned to the applicant.

4. When should you register? - We recommend registering well in advance, at least two months before your chosen test date. This is because processing and checking the documents can take up to 25 working days.

5. Reapplication - An application who has already received special test accommodations for the PET, AMIR, MITAM and wants to take a retest, or to take another test, must make a new application.

Stage 3 - Application Questionnaire

To apply for special test accommodations, fill out the Applicant Questionnaire. Requests without the questionnaire will not be considered.

 

Stage 4 - Submitting documents and evaluations [see here]

The deadline for submitting an application and the accompanying documents is the same as the registration deadline for your chosen test.

Processing and checking the documents can take up to 25 working days.

If you submit your application less than a month before the deadline, you will almost certainly not have enough time to submit additional documents, an appeal, or a reevaluation request.

So we recommend that you submit the application and accompanying documents well in advance, at least two months before the registration deadline.

All the documents listed below should be sent in one envelope.

Initial document submission does not require any payment above and beyond the registration fee for the test.

N.B. There is a fee for submitting additional documents after the application, or for an appeal against the decision.

 

Address for document submission by email for tests through the end of 2019:

mutam@nite.org.il. The application must be received before the registration deadline, and must include the following documents:

 

  • Application form
  • Completed applicant questionnaire with two signatures, as required
  • Medical records or evaluations documenting the disability for which you are requesting special accommodations, and in accordance with the guidelines described below

 

These documents must be attached as PDF files and in their original size (not as a reduced-size photocopy). The documents must be clear, legible, and complete.

A text message will be sent notifying you that your email has been received. At that point, your application will be reviewed, as described in the section entitled “Procedures for Handling Registration and Decisions on Special Test Accommodations”.
