AMMAN — General Secondary Certificate Examination (Tawjihi) students in Jordan will be able to apply online to all the Kingdom’s public universities starting Wednesday morning and until Saturday midnight, a Ministry of Higher Education official said on Sunday.

Ghaleb Hourani, director of the Unified Admissions Committee, said students who scored 65 per cent and above in the Tawjihi winter session can apply to universities using the unified admission website

Hourani said the committee will be working 12 hours a day after receiving the applications so that the unified admission list can be announced as soon as possible.

He told The Jordan Times that the winter semester in all of the Kingdom’s public universities has already started, and “we do not want students who will be accepted this semester to miss many classes.”

Last week, the Higher Education Council decided to accept 13,902 of the students who pass the Tawjihi winter session in the Kingdom’s public universities.

Tawjihi results were announced Sunday, but Education Minister Mohammad Thneibat did not elaborate on the number of students who passed the exams with rates above than 65 per cent to qualify them to enrol at public universities.

Students’ Tawjihi grades decide their future in higher education. It is the main criterion to determine the specialty in which they can major, the public university they can enrol at and whether they are qualified to go to university.
