Fico: I copied and chased girls at school

AS A SECONDARY school student, Slovakia’s Prime Minister Robert Fico copied, chased girls, did not like math and physics and hated chemistry, according to his own words.

The PM admitted all of this to students at the secondary school in Topoľčany where he studied 24 years ago, SITA wrote.

He told the students that the most frequently used crib sheet he used had a shape of half-circle that was pinned underneath the desk. Fico thinks that writing crib sheets is the best way to learn.

Fico also said that he originally wanted to study archaeology and became a lawyer because only three students were accepted to the archaeology course at university at that time.

He said he cherished his time in secondary school as the most beautiful period of his life.

The class would go on trips, usually to the Low Tatras. “There was drinking and going after girls. I don’t need to tell you about that or else I would probably turn red,” said the PM.

Fico visited his former secondary school on the occasion of its 70th anniversary.
