Ministry Spokes person Muhannad Al-Khatibtold Al-Mamlaka TV on Thursday that the objections fell into two categories. Requests related to humanitarian cases totaled 13,388. “These were not true objections,” as they did not reflect any errors in grant and loan data or processing, he said.

The second category contained 14,743 objections, however, only 2,325 were considered “real” objections supported by documents submitted by students and requiring recalculation or rectification of students’ financial aid status, the spokesperson noted.
