The Te'udat Bagrut (Hebrew תעודת בגרות ), short Bagrut is the Israeli form of the final examination after completion of a higher education. It corresponds roughly to the German Abitur and the Austrian school.

The Bagrut is handled centrally by the Israeli Ministry of Education. The form and content of the examination are therefore identical for all students, but the test in five different difficulty levels can be stored. Furthermore, there are next to and within the compulsory subjects certain choices that are also based, however, in most cases on standardized tests.

As passed applies the Bagrut, provided a note of 55 percent or higher was achieved. To be admitted to a university degree, a full matriculation examination must be passed. For this purpose, at least one region must be insisted on the highest difficulty level, and at least 21 sub-units are successfully completed. Although theoretically the Bagrut allows admission to higher education, most require Israeli universities an additional psychometric test before shooting.
