Afghan women barred from uni entrance exam
The Taliban-run Ministry of Higher Education has banned female students in Afghanistan from registering for the 2023 university entrance exam.
A letter sent to private universities and higher education institutions by authorities outlined the restrictions, local broadcaster TOLOnews reported on Saturday.
The letter states that female students cannot enrol until “further notice”.
Officials in the Ministry of Higher Education later confirmed the letter and the report to the DPA news agency.
