AMMAN – The Ministry of Education will announce the results of the General Secondary Certificate Examination’s (Tawjihi) winter session by mid-February, an official said on Tuesday.

Education Ministry Spokesperson Walid Jallad told The Jordan Times that the process of “inputting grades” is ongoing and the results are expected to be announced once they are reviewed. 

A total of 161,309 students registered for the Tawjihi winter session, which started on December 27, 2014 and took place in 1,500 examination halls with 13,000 teachers monitoring the exams.

Students’ Tawjihi scores decide in which university they can study and what majors they can choose.

According to the ministry’s figures, 60 people with visual disabilities and 93 weak-sighted students registered for the session, together with 167 deaf students, 117 people with physical disabilities and 61 students with cerebral palsy.

Some 1,300 violations were registered during this winter session, which ended on January 18, compared to 6,000 infringements during the last winter session, according to ministry figures.

With the announcement of Tawjihi results, students typically take to the streets to celebrate in car processions, causing traffic jams and accidents.

Celebratory gunfire is also common after Tawjihi results are released.
