This study aimed to investigate the attitude of Ash-Shobak university college students concerning the electronic exam for intermediate university degree in Jordan, and identify the impact of gender and grade point average (GPA) variables on students' attitudes. To achieve this objective, a questionnaire consisting of (26) items was used, and distributed among all the students attending the exam in Ash-Shobak University College during the first and second semesters of the academic year 2014/2015, their number reached (112) students. Furthermore, (108) full questionnaires were retrieved. The results showed positive attitudes among students towards E-exam, but there were some negative attitudes ascribed to the high-level of anxiety and stress among students, and over exams' ability to raise the efficiency of students' achievement or limit cheating. The results also showed no statistically significant differences in students' attitudes attributed to the variables of gender and GPA. Accordingly, the researcher recommends using the electronic version of the intermediate university certificate exam. Thus, the researcher also recommends avoiding the negative impact of the exam, and developing it to raise efficiency in measuring the students' achievement.
