The old switcharoo
A Taipei Municipal Chien Kuo High School senior surnamed Chou (周), front row center, poses for photographs with classmates in the school on Tuesday.

Chao was originally asked to answer some questions from reporters after he was admitted to Taiwan's No. 1 university, National Taiwan University, on Tuesday.

Reporters who wrote the interviews were given demerits by their respective news agencies for failing to confirm the interviewee's identity with school authorities beforehand.
