Unified admission draws mostly positive reactions from university students


(MENAFN- Jordan Times) AMMAN — As students returned to in-person education in all universities across the Kingdom this week, first-year students reflect on applying through unified admission to register to universities in Jordan.

Omar Dababneh, a General Secondary Education Certificate Examination (Tawjihi)  graduate, got admission to study medicine at a public university.

“While applying online, I faced some issues but then figured it out,” he told The Jordan Times. 

Ahmad Oweis, another Tawjihi student who was admitted to study computer science, added that he faced difficulties of another sort. 

“The online procedure was not hard, but I had difficulty in deciding desired majors and universities by order,” he told The Jordan Times

Oweis added that it is“a bit confusing because it depends not only on what I would like to study, but also how competitive each major is”.

Raghad Ghammaz has been accepted to study medicine at another public university but also stressed how competitive it is to apply for unified admission. 

“I got into the major I wanted but not the university I wanted because my Tawjiihi score was lower than their minimum acceptance rate for this year by only 0.4 per cent,” she told The Jordan Times.

However, she found the online application system easy. 

“It was helpful because it provided all the information necessary for applying — about majors and their average acceptance score, each field's scope in terms of job opportunities post-graduation, and the fees appointed for each university and major,” she added.

Both Nadeem Baqaeen and Ghadeer Al Khatib sat for the Tawjihi exams again this year to increase their chances when applying through unified admission. 

Baqaeen, who got admitted studying political sciences at a public university, said that“the steps were clear on the website”.

However, this was not the first time Khatib applied to a Jordanian university before, as she already got her bachelor's degree in English language and literature from a public university.

“After sitting for my Tawjihi exams again, I got the second rank across the kingdom with a 98.05 per cent score,” she told The Jordan Times. 

She added that although studying for Tawjihi again was challenging,“I applied through unified admission smoothly and got admitted to study nutrition in a public university”.

At the beginning of this academic year, Khatib wished her classmates success, saying:“Make sure you are studying a major you are passionate about and that will help you achieve your goals.”
