Reconnaissance du diplôme de l'IB par les établissements d'enseignement supérieur
- Students must have passes in at least six IB subjects, two of them at HL.
- Arabic is required at either HL or SL for Jordanian and Arab students.
- A second language is required at either level
- One Math must be amongst the six subjects
- One Science must be amongst the six subjects
- No single subject can be repeated / taken at both Levels
- Depending on whether students are seeking equivalence with the Sciences or the Arts stream, the six subjects must include;
- either Maths and one Science subject at HL
- or two Science subjects at HL
A further four SL subjects are required. These would need to also include (other than the two Sciences and Math):
- Two languages: Arabic (for Jordanian/Arab students) and a foreign language
- And one Individuals & Society (Group 3) or Art and Design subject.
Arts Stream - Requires two subjects at HL as follows:
- either one language and one Individuals & Society subject at HL
- or two languages at HL

A further four SL subjects are required within the following requirements
In total, two languages are needed at either level:

- At least one Group 3 subject (at either level)

Numerical equivalency between IB Diploma points and Tawjihi percentage grades was approved by both public and private universities as follows:
|IB Grade||Tawjihi percentage grade|
The bonus marks are not included because, if they were, the average could exceed 100%.
All state universities now admit IB Diploma holders on the basis of this formula, with the subject grade converted into a percentage grade and the average calculated accordingly. The percentage averages required for the most competitive faculties such as Medicine, Pharmacy and Engineering remain exceedingly high and do not fall below the 95% mark in these universities. The private universities have adopted the same equivalence arrangement. Most of them go further by accepting Certificate candidates who do not attempt the full Diploma, or Certificate holders who have failed the Diploma but still meet the above conditions.
All students, regardless of their qualifications must satisfy other national requirements (such as specific conditions for the Science or Arts streams, a minimum equivalent score of 80% for those intending to study Medicine, Engineering or Pharmacy etc) to enrol at any university inside or outside Jordan. Otherwise, they will not be licensed to practice their profession in Jordan upon graduation from university.
Schools with Jordanian candidates who are planning to attend Jordanian universities should complete a B2 form (results provision request) on IBNET/IBIS to request that the results of these students be released to the Ministry of Education in Jordan.
