Female medical students from various faculties of private and government universities called on the Afghan interim government to determine their exit examination.
The students said that they cannot make decisions about their futures if the exit examinations are not held.
The exit examination for male students at medical universities was held nearly three weeks ago, but the date for the female students' examination has yet to be determined by the caretaker government.
“Because they promised us that they will give our examination, we are preparing, hoping that this examination will take place. So we are hoping that they will give our examination as soon as possible,” said Royina, a student.
The students expressed concerns about their future.
“Our examination has not been held and this is our right and I think it is a major wrong against us,” said Ana Khani, a student.
The students meanwhile also called on the Islamic Emirate to reopen their universities.
“As long as the gates of universities and schools have been closed on us, there is deep sorrow and disappointment that we cannot continue our education and this is bothering us,” said Firoza Amini, a student.
The Afghanistan Medical Council (AMC) held the exit exam for male students on February 10, 2023. The time for the female students has not been determined yet.
