It’s no secret that exam schedules can be annoying, but would you write your country’s president to voice your concerns? How about hacking their official website?
Enter this summer’s boldest Sri Lankan teenager. The BBC reported that a 17-year-old student has been arrested for allegedly hacking President Maithripala Sirisena’s website to express frustration over the country’s exam schedule. The announcement that the A-level (or advanced) exams were scheduled for April angered the teen, who pointed out that the exams coincided with celebrations for Sinhala and Tamil New Year.
