AMMAN — Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research and Minister of Education Wajih Owais on Thursday affirmed that the General Secondary Certificate Examination (Tawjihi) winter session was proceeding without any difficulties.

On Thursday, several citizens gathered outside an examination hall in Karak, using loudspeakers to affect the examination’s progress, the minister said, adding that the Public Security Department (PSD) personnel who were stationed outside the hall managed to keep them away and to break up the gathering.

Owais conceded that there had also been some attempts by students to disturb the progress of the examination by hurling stones at PSD personnel.
