Israel’s admissions system is currently in turmoil.
The country has seen a series of suicides by students who say they were denied a place in the university, and a string of suicides among students at the elite Beit Hanina institution.
On Monday, an Israeli court decided to grant a petition by the Israeli Ministry of Education to extend the deadline for Israeli students who have already applied to the Beit Hamikdash for a place to complete their studies.
The petition sought to extend until October 2019 the deadline by which Israeli applicants must now complete their degree, but the court ruled that the deadline would be extended by another three months.
The deadline for the second wave of Israeli students seeking to transfer to Israel is March 2021.
The ruling is in line with the previous one granted in October 2019, which allowed up to six months for a student to transfer from one university to another.
The Israeli government is facing growing criticism over the quality of its admissions process, with students from more than 30 countries, including the United States, Italy, Germany and the United Kingdom, reportedly choosing to transfer instead of entering Israel.
The Israel Education Ministry has called on its students to accept the government’s recommendation to grant them full-tuition grants, but many have said that they have been refused.
As of September 2018, around 300,000 Israelis had applied for the country’s top universities, the most recent batch of applicants.
The ministry has been criticized by the countrys education minister, Naftali Bennett, for his decision to postpone the deadline until 2019.
Bennett said the decision to wait until 2019 would not only harm the quality and value of the university system, but also undermine Israel’s ability to recruit foreign students.
In a letter to the Israeli public, Bennett wrote that the postponement of the 2019 deadline would not solve the problem, and that the ministry would continue to work to increase international standards.
Bennett’s position was backed by the head of the education ministry, Reuven Rivlin, who said that Israel’s current academic standards would not allow the country to meet international standards for the first time in its history.
The issue of university admissions is an important one for Israeli society, Rivlin said, adding that he believed that the university admission process was too difficult for students from the United Arab Emirates and the Palestinian Territories.
Rivlin told Haaretz that the government is trying to solve the issue by providing students with more flexibility in terms of which universities they can transfer to.
As a result, the number of international students entering Israel has increased significantly in recent years, he said.
The number of applicants for admission to Israeli universities in 2018 was 2.7 million, according to the ministry.
Israel has more than 1.2 million international students, which make up approximately 16% of its total population.
In the last two years, Israel has also seen an increase in the number from around 1.4 million to 1.6 million.
Haaretz reported that the number for 2018 has more people from the UAE, Qatar, the United Sudan and Egypt who have applied to be admitted into Israel.
