The British daily’s Kabul correspondent reports about the stresses on the Afghan higher education system, briefly quotes Obaid Ali from his AAN dispatch on the kankur, the university entry examination, and uses some more details AAN found, unfortunately out without crediting us.

Obaid Ali, a researcher with the Afghanistan Analysts Network in Kabul, said the most serious challenge to a fair kankur process is interference from power brokers in the provinces.
