70-year-old Jordanian obtains secondary school certificate after 48 years
A 70-year-old Jordanian has achieved his dream of obtaining the secondary school certificate after 48 years through 6 attempts.
Saleh Khalil Hijazeen explained that the average he obtained would enable him to move to another stage of education.
He also revealed that his first attempt to pass the scientific high school exam was in 1973, but failed so he tried again in 1979 in the literary stream, but also failed.
He then tried again in 1981, and 1990 but failed.
In 2003, he and his son sat for the exam, but he failed and his son went through, so he decided to stop his attempts in 2003.
Hijazeen said he would not stop seeking science throughout his life.
