Retaking a Test with Special Accommodations

The law prohibits NITE from assigning you to a test with special accommodations unless you submit an explicit request. This is true even if you received special accommodations for the test on a previous date. Therefore, unless you inform NITE of your desire to take a test with special accommodations before the close of registration, you will be tested under regular conditions.

Note! If you are applying because of a physical or mental limitation it is important to make sure that the documentation is current, i.e., issued no more than a year before the date of the test for which you are registering. If the professional documentation you submitted previously is not from the last year, you will need to provide updated materials.

If you received special accommodations for a test in the past, and you wish to retake that test, select one of the following options during registration:

 

Reapplication on the Basis of Existing Documentation

If you select this option, the professional staff will review your application for special accommodations on the basis of documents already on file.

You will receive an SMS confirming receipt of your application.

Note: Once you select this option, any appeal or submission of additional documents is subject to a fee.

 

Submission of Additional Documentation for Review

If you wish to receive additional accommodations or submit updated documents, you may do so after registering for the test. To do so:

  • Log in on the website. Click on the test you registered for and then on “special accommodations” and follow the instructions. You will receive an SMS confirmation of receipt of your application.
  • Do not attach documents that you have submitted in the past.

Your applications will be reviewed based on the documents we have on file and additional ones that you attach.

Note: Once you have submitted your application, submission of additional documents or lodging an appeal is subject to a fee.

Documents can also be submitted via email:

  • Complete the applicant questionnaire (for male applicant / female applicant) in order to retake a test or take another test.
  • The questionnaire and any additional documents should be emailed to: mutam@nite.org.il with the name and identity number of the test taker in the subject line.
  • Do not attach documents that you have submitted in the past.

You will receive an automatic response to your email confirming that your documents have been sent to the correct address.
You will receive an SMS when your application comes under review.

Please note: Special accommodations are not available for test takers who register late, even if they have been granted accommodations.

 

I did not take the test for which I registered. What should I do?

If you were granted social accommodations for a specific test that you did not take you must log in to the website to transfer your registration to a different test date.

After completing registration for the new test date, you must email the Special Accommodations Unit. Your application must be received by the close of registration for the new test date. You may:

  • request to be tested with the special accommodations you were granted for the test you did not take (free of charge)
  • submit additional documents for review (subject to a fee)

Complete the applicant questionnaire (for male applicant / female applicant) in order to retake a test or take another test. Send the questionnaire and the additional documents (should there be any) to mutam@nite.org.il with the name and identity number of the test taker in the subject line.

Please note: Unless you inform NITE of your desire to take a test with special accommodations before the close of registration, you will be tested under regular conditions.

Special accommodations are not available for test takers who register late, even if they have been granted accommodations.
