:Local: Undergraduates sit for first Kafaa exam

AMMAN ? University students from five specialities graduating this semester on Saturday sat for the Kingdom's first university achievement examination, Kafaa.

Business administration, English language and literature, computer science, chemistry and mathematics students took the two-hour exam that tests their accumulated knowledge in their chosen discipline.

As the test is administered in English, students who studied business administration in Arabic are exempt.

Firas Alawin, who studies English at Isra University and took the exam on Saturday, was certain that he would fail.

He told The Jordan Times the exam ?focused on literature, particularly American literature, and excluded any language questions from courses like linguistics and phonetics, which is part of the department's syllabus.???

He added that the exam's two-hour duration was ?absolutely insufficient to answer the 150 questions, which did not tackle our general knowledge in the discipline as our instructors said it would, but instead focused on details.???

Students have three chances to pass or score better results in the Kafaa, which will later expand to cover all specialities taught at local universities.

Students of Yarmouk, Muta, Jerash and Isra universities, as well as the Jordan University of Science and Technology sat for the test yesterday, while undergraduates from the remaining universities will take the exam on 21st and 28th of the current month.

Rules of war (in a nutshell) Since the beginning, humans have resorted to violence as a way to settle disagreements. Yet through the ages, people from around the world have tried to limit the brutality of war. It was this humanitarian spirit that led to the First Geneva Convention of 1864, and to the birth of modern International Humanitarian Law. Setting the basic limits on how wars can be fought, these universal laws of war protect those not fighting, as well as those no longer able to. To do this, a distinction must always be made between who or what may be attacked, and who or what must be spared and protected.
