SAT - Scholastic Aptitude Test

The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) will be considered in lieu of the Psychometric Test for admission to first-year undergraduate degree programs and for advanced standing (second or third year) in undergraduate degree programs in all faculties except the Faculty of Science. The Hebrew University code for ordering a college report is 4551.

The Hebrew University accepts ACT scores as well. The required score for reach program appears on the Programs of Study Table here. Applicants who wish to check admission prospects according to ACT and Mechina grades, must first translate ACT scores to SAT scores. A comparison table is available here. The Hebrew University code for ordering a college report is 2757.

Note: The schools of Medicine, Dental Medicine and Veterinary Medicine do not accept SAT/ACT scores in lieu of Psychometric Test scores.

Candidates who are uncertain whether they are required to take the SAT or the Psychometric Entrance Test should contact their admissions advisor.

Interpreting Test Results

The Hebrew University converts SAT scores using criteria that take into account both the similarities and differences between the SAT and the Psychometric Test.

The highest combined score from one examination session is accepted (there is no Super Score). The type of score used and the scores required for the various majors are updated regularly on the website. The score is presented as an average between the two parts of the test. General average: 50% English and 50% Math; Quantitative average: 33% English and 67% Math; Verbal average: 67% English and 33% Math.
The conversion of the old SAT is carried out on the Reading and Math sections only; the University does not use the score on the Writing section.
