Terms & Process
The Program is intended for talented and gifted students who are currently in the 8th grade (during the 2020 school year).
The admissions process and studies take place at Tel Aviv University, Bar-Ilan University, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Ben Gurion University of the Negev, The Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, and Tel-Hai Academic College.
Candidates can register for one, and only one, academic institution. All admissions tests and processes will take place at the institution to which the candidate registered, as will the studies themselves.
The first stage
Registration via the (Future Scientists) website.
You (the candidate) will receive an e-mail within a few days of registering, asking you to upload a photo of themselves and a school transcript.
Enter the profile section within the Program’s website and add the following documents:
- A photo of yourself
- Your most recent school transcript or report card (Candidacy will only be secured once a clearly scanned copy that includes the student’s name, name of school and school stamp, is received).
- Documented confirmation of a learning disability diagnosis, for students requesting extra time on their first admissions test (the Future Scientists Test).
It is recommended that you prepare these documents as early as possible, so that you can add them as soon as you are promoted to by e-mail, in January.
The second stage
The first national admissions test - the Future Scientists Test.
What will be tested?
You can download a workbook with test examples and explanations, so you can prepare for the exam.
Please read the instructions and explanations carefully, in order to come to the test as prepared as possible.
