The Taliban-run Ministry of Higher Education ordered private universities in Afghanistan not to allow female students to sit university entrance exams next month.
A letter from the ministry was addressed to institutions in Afghanistan’s northern provinces where exams are due to take place from the end of February.
The letter from the ministry said those institutions that did not observe the rules would face legal action.
The country is in the midst of crisis, partly due to the Talibans also restricting women from university educations.
The Higher Education Ministry in December told universities not to allow female students until further notice.
Days later, the administration also stopped most female NGO workers from working.
Most girls’ high schools have also been closed by authorities.
