Link-1:
"Brazil's association of lawyers has complained that
a boy so young should never have been allowed to sit
a university entrance exam, and has called on the
education ministry to ensure that no other primary
schoolers are given the chance to sit such tests.
"

Hmmm... not allowed.

The only thing surprising to me is that the parents would allow their child to pursue such a sleazy profession! But I guess the little one has his mind made up, "It's been decided."
