IRBID — Dozens of General Secondary Certificate Examination (Tawjihi) students held a sit-in on Sunday in front of the Irbid education directorate, protesting against the ministry’s intention to hold the next examination session at universities and reduce the exam duration.

They also called for increasing the hours allotted for the examinations.

Education Director Ali Momani met with a number of protesters and said that all the rumours related to the next examination session are just proposals that are still being studied, calling on students to submit their comments on these proposals in writing to be forwarded to the education minister for consideration.
