Language Level & Exemption Exams

Depending on your Hebrew level and the duration of your Hebrew course, upon your completion of the course (at the end of a semester or the Summer Ulpan), you will take either the Level Exam or the Exemption Exam. Exam scores are used to determine your Hebrew level for the following semester – and/or whether you meet the departmental Hebrew proficiency requirement for degree studies.

  • If you are completing Levels Aleph through Heh, you will take the Level Exam.
  • If you are completing Level Vav, you will take the Exemption Exam.
  • If you reached exemption level on your general placement exam and writing placement exam, you may also take the Exemption Exam.

First & Second Exam Sittings

The Level Exam and the Exemption Exam are given twice at the end of each Summer Ulpan or semester course. The first sitting (Moed Aleph) takes place at the end of the course, while the second sitting (Moed Bet) is held several weeks later. You may decide to take both Moed Aleph and Moed Bet, but should be aware that if you do, the grade on the Moed Bet will be your final test grade.
