Turkish Police Inspect Printer for Coded Exams, Milliyet Says

Ankara’s chief prosecutor ordered police to inspect the company that printed Turkey’s university entrance exams, amid allegations the answers were coded to help favored students, Milliyet reported.

The police confiscated exam papers and searched computers to find out whether the papers sent to the press, in which the correct answers could be found using a simple formula, were also sent to students, Milliyet said.

Ali Demir, head of the testing service, has denied that the questions were coded. His predecessor, Unal Yarimagan, said that Demir’s explanation was “not satisfactory,” Milliyet said.
