Turkish youth claims unique record at university exam

ANKARA - A Turkish student said Sunday he was poised to set a record at a nationwide university entrance exam... by giving the wrong answer to all 180 questions.
Speaking to reporters after Sunday's exam, which 1.5 million youths sat, Sefa Boyar said he was hopeful he would achieve the record.
"I'm confident. It's a very high possibility that I will end up with zero correct answers," he told Anatolia news agency.
Boyar has been the focus of media attention since he announced last month he would attempt to give wrong answers to all 180 questions in protest against the country's notoriously complicated university entrance exam, an ordeal for students and families.
