AMMAN — The Ministry of Education on Wednesday finalised preparations for the 2019 summer session of the Tawjihi (general secondary education certificate examination).

The session begins on June 11 and ends on July 1, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Education Minister Walid Maani said that 159,209 students in all streams of the programme will sit for the Tawjihi tests during the aforementioned period.

The complementary session, for those who failed to complete all their subjects or wish to raise their marks, will be held a week after announcing the examination results, no later than July 25, according to a statement carried by Petra.

Complementary sessions are designed to give students a chance to enrol in universities on time, are free of charge and do not require students to register, Petra said.

The number of students sitting for examination from the scientific stream is 56,268, the statement underlined, 80,673 from the literary stream, 192 from the Sharia stream, 2,674 from the IT stream and 156 from the health education stream.

Tests will be held in 1,469 central examination rooms across 513 schools around the Kingdom, Petra stated.

Meanwhile, 37 students from juvenile reform and rehabilitation centres will be sitting for the exam.

The education ministry has also prepared writers to assist blind students with their examination, in addition to waiving the requirement for the mathematics and computer science tests for students who do not fall under that category.
