Among the 116,173 high-school graduates who took university entrance exams last June, Olga Koutsika came first.
She got a perfect 20 out of 20 in biology, Ancient Greek, Latin, literature and history. Modern Greek was the only exam she did not manage to get full marks: 19.3. Contrary to what you tend to think, she did not spend nights and days glued to her desk – instead she dedicated several hours each week to practising her beloved ballet.
In an interview to the Athens News, Koutsika speaks about her hopes and dreams and reveals the origins of her success.
