Female students who have completed the twelfth grade say they want to participate in the kankor exam.
They called on the Islamic Emirate to allow them to participate like boys in this year’s kankor exam.
Sahar said she went to her school because of the entrance examination form, but she was not given an entrance exam card and returned home disappointed.
“This year we went to our schools to receive the entrance exam form, but they told us that they have not yet given any information from the higher education department about taking the entrance exam for female students,” said Sahar.
“When we went to school, they didn’t allow us to receive the kankor exam form and said that still nothing is clear now about girls’ entrance exam,” said Zahra, a graduate student.
Meanwhile, some female students called on the Islamic Emirate to reopen schools and universities for them.
"Whatever law they say, we observe; they said hijab we wear hijab, we just want them to reopen universities and schools for girls,” said Zakira, a graduate student.
“Reopen education doors for girls so they can serve their country,” said Farkhonda, a graduate student.
Some women's rights activists said they believe that the removal of women from society will bring unfortunate consequences.
"Removing women and girls from society has unfortunate consequences,” said Azada Bakhshi, a women’s rights activist.
