A Marivani school girl went on hunger strike to protest the announced results of the national test for university admission in Iran. Gelaveaj Arjangi, who was an honor student at the public school of Marivan, protested discrimination in student admissions to the Farhangian Beit-ol Hoda University in Sanandaj. She ranked 345 in the national test for university admission.
According to her father, people with four-digit ranks had been admitted to the Farhangian University, but Gelaveaj was denied admission despite a three-digit ranking. (The state-run Daneshjou news website ssn.ir – September 20, 2017)
