Problem Statement: Enrolling students into the General Associate-Degree Examinations is a very difficult, critical, and important process. Students are required to pass this exam in Jordan to be given the Associate Degree in the filed of study they studied for 2 years. The exam is held 3 times per annum; annually, more than 15,000 students from different colleges all over the country apply to the exam. Managing all exam activities is a very complex and sophisticated process. In the old, conventional method, i.e. the manual registration system, communication between different parties working with exam activities is very difficult. Lack of technologies used in exam activities obstructs dealing with it in a modern and simplified way. Approach: The main outcome is to computerize everything related to the General Associate-Degree Examination. To do so, the Waterfall Model is to be used to study the new system requirements, analyze it, design, implement, and finally test and deploy it. Results: After the deployment of the new system and working with it, all the problems referred to were solved; this is done by adopting the Online Registration System which helped a lot in reducing the errors resulted in different ways and which in turn afferent the correctness of the exam itself. Conclusion/Recommendation: In conclusion a web-based tool was developed to computerize the required steps already expected by the system. As a further work, some features might be added, such as adding SMS support, adding AJAX functionality to the website to increase response time, and to create a bulletin board system, that might enable different parties working with the system to interact and communicate with each other easily.
