The psychometric test in Israel is comprised of a writing task and eight 20-minute long sections, 20-22 multiple choice questions each. Total exam time: 3 hours 15 minutes. Only the writing task and six of the sections are graded. The seven sections that make up your score are:
- Writing task
- Two quantitative reasoning sections;
- Two verbal reasoning sections;
- Two English sections.
However, the quantitative and verbal reasoning sections determine 40% of the final score each (80% total), while the English sections only determine 20% of the score. The final score is on a 200-800 scale.

Who is the integrated psychometric course or the English psychometric course for?
An integrated psychometric course in English comes to make it easier for examinees for whom Hebrew is not their mother tongue, or for those whose level of English is higher than the level of the Hebrew language. The test is written in both languages, with each pair of pages containing a Hebrew version and an English version (in an accurate translation), so that the examinee can choose which language to read and solve the test.
The combined version of the English / Hebrew psychometric test is offered twice a year: February and July. A combined psychometric test in English is valid for seven years, and is optimal for foreign candidates whose Hebrew is weak, or for native English speakers who live in Israel and prefer to take the test in English instead of Hebrew.
In a nutshell, admission to Israeli universities:
A psychometric course in English is very useful and the psychometric test is the main requirement for applying to higher education institutions in Israel. Admissions committees use the psychometric score as the central criterion, which is examined along with the high school grades, to evaluate the candidate’s academic promise.
