AMMAN —Al Ghad— The Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, Wajih Oweis, reassured in a statement to “Al Ghad” on Wednesday, that the Ministry does not intend to lower the minimum GPA requirement for admission in private universities.

Minister Oweis also uncovered directives for the years 2017/2018, to allow for students who failed the general examination programme (Tawjihi) to enrol in colleges and institutes, and enable them to join the domestic labour market place, with the ability for those who complete their Tawjihi programme to bridge their education once they graduate college and enrol in Jordanian universities.

On another note, Oweis stated that the abolition of the Parallel university education programme is still under review, and that a decision on the matter has yet to be reached.
