Allegations of coded multiple choice answers and unequal practices by surveillants forced high school graduates to hit the streets nationwide in protest of YGS, the nationwide university qualification exams.

Organized through Facebook and Twitter, students gathered in 19 cities. Tens of thousands of students protested YGS, OSYM (Student Election and Placement Center), and YOK (Higher Education Board).

Main themes of the protests were “Cost and YGS free education”. High school graduates met in Istanbul, Ankara, Izmie, Adana, Antalya, Hakkari, Bursa and many other city centers.
