KABUL, AFGHANISTAN: The National Examination Authority and Ministry of Higher Education of Afghanistan announced the result of 1399 Kankor_ Afghanistan’s Nationwide University Entrance Examination_ on 24 September 2020. According to the National Examination Authority (“NEXA”), more than 197,000 applicants had registered for the exam, but nearly 173,000 applicants attended the exam, out of which about 170,000 have successfully passed the exam which constitutes 98 percent of all applicants in this year’s examination.

Also, the remaining 3000 applicants constituting 2 percent of applicants have failed in the national exam which is considerably low compared to previous years,” NEXA said.

Shamsia Alizada, a graduate of Asef Mayeel High School in Kabul, has achieved the highest number on the national university entrance exam (353,185) coming top among up to 200,000 students who took the test.

In the announcement ceremony for the Kankor Exam Results, Abbas Basir, Afghanistan’s Acting Higher Education Minister said that the country’s higher education system has only the capacity to attract nearly 10 percent of all applicants to the public higher education institutions. “10% acceptance rate is one of the lowest rates at the regional and global level in this regard”, Basir said. “It is a very rare and insufficient percentage”, he also added.

Similarly, the MoHE acting minister announced that the ministry shall allocate 122 fully-funded scholarships for the 1399 Kankor Exam toppers i.e., 20 scholarships for the top 20 students in the general exam across the country, and the remaining 102 for the three top students (1-3) of each province to study abroad.
