A “passing grade” on the Internship/Licensing exams is 60%.
After receiving the final results and confirmation from the Examination Committee (up to 60 days from the committee’s discussion of the exam results), the examinee will be able to check his/her score on the IMA’s website.
The results will be published about a month and a half after the exam. An announcement on the precise date of publication will appear on the IMA’s website, with a link from the home page. An official notice about the exam results will be sent via email following publication of the results on the website and their certification by the chair of the Examination Committee.
The Exam Committee will notify the Ministry of Health, Medical Professions Licensing Department, of the exam results (“pass” or “fail”).
- An examinee whose grade on the exam is between 55 and 59 may appeal the results of the exam.
- Registration for an appeal procedure is done via the IMA website, no later than 10 days after publication of the exam results on the website. (Please note: The Exam Committee will not discuss requests that reach its office after that date.)
*Please note!! Results of the exam will not be given by telephone.
For your convenience, below are the links to the instructions published by the Ministry of Health for those who succeed in passing the Internship/Licensing exams:
Ministry of Health instructions for examinees who have passed the government exam for candidates for medical Internship
Ministry of Health instructions for physicians who have passed the government medical professions licensing exams
Pursuant to a recommendation by the District Court, the IMA Scientific Committee and the Ministry of Health conducted a discussion on the issue of “Nullification of questions and awarding of points for them” and determined that examinees in the Licensing/Internship exam beginning in 2014 and thereafter were entitled to points for alternate correct response choices accepted as such for a given question, providing that the examinee correctly selected one of the alternate response choices deemed correct before or after the appeal, and would be entitled to points for that question.
