For the first time, 240 students, half of them girls, took a higher education entrance examination in northern Nimroz province on Monday, officials said. Previously students from Nimroz had to take their exams in Herat province, and many youngsters, especially girls, were unable to take part because of the long distance and expense.
The Nimroz exam was monitored by representatives of the Ministry of Higher Education, Nimroz education director, Abdul Khalil Rahmani, said.
Half of the participants were girls, he said
About 40,000 students study in schools in Nimroz, about 40 percent of them are girls. However, there are no higher education facilities for girls in the province.
