    German Teens Are Making Freedom Of Information Requests To See Their Exams Before They Take Them

    These kids will go far.

    Abitur exams (abis) are the equivalent of 'A' Levels in the UK.

    And of course, it's hell. (This tweet reads: "Why do I abi?").

    But this kid called Phillip Langen has come up with a pretty genius ruse. He's put in a Freedom of Information request to the German Ministry of Culture to see the exam papers before they're released.

    He made the request through this "Ask The State" website. According to German law, the Government should, in theory, be obliged to release the papers.

    So far though, he's just got an automatic response.

    And it turns out he's not the only one.
