Screening test in Arabic

The screening test in Arabic for the 2018/19 academic year will take place on the following two dates:

Monday, August 6, 2018, at 10:00 a.m. (Location – TBA)

Thursday, October 4, 2018, at 10:00 a.m. (Location – TBA)

The estimated duration of the test is about 3 hours. A student may take the test on only one of the two dates, not on both, prior to a given academic year.

The test is aimed at students with prior knowledge of Arabic, who studied Modern Standard Arabic at Hebrew-medium high schools, and took 3- or 5-point bagrut examinations in the subject, as well as those who acquired their knowledge in military or other frameworks. The aim of the screening test is to sort the students according to their levels of knowledge of Arabic. The test has two levels: beginning and advanced.

The following are exempt from the screening test:

  • Students who have been accepted to, and intend to study in, the Department of Arabic Language and Literature. A student dropping out of studies in Arabic Language and Literature in the first year will be required to take the screening test (passing the entrance exam of the Department of Arabic Language and Literature does not automatically exempt one from Arabic studies within the Department of Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies)
  • Students who are native speakers of Arabic

Candidates are requested to bring Arabic-Hebrew or Arabic-English dictionaries to the screening test. The recommended dictionaries are Ayalon-Shinar, Sharoni (comprehensive edition), Wehr.

The results of the screening test will be published two days after the test.
