Khatib said that the university admission policy allocates a specific number of seats to students of Jordanian women married to foreigners, and that competition over these seats is held before the first semester each year.

He added that these students who passed the recently held supplementary Tawjihi session for the first time but wish to raise their GPA grades will have the chance to sit again and compete for the seats universities allocate them during the summer session, provided that they are in possession of an “identification card for children of Jordanian women”, issued by the Civil Status and Passports Department.
