With nine educational diplomas under his belt, Zhou Baokuan can definitely claim
the title of “smartest man in China.” When it comes to education, we all want
the best for our kids, but I think Zhou Baokuan’s parents might have pushed him
a little to far, when he was a child. I mean, the man started studying and even
though he is now 53 years old, he has no intention of stopping. More images

In recognition of his incredible desire to study, an organization known as China
World Records Association decided to award Zhou the title of “man with most
diplomas in the world.” Over the course of 35 years of intense studying
(sometimes without sleep) the man earned a total of nine diplomas, including
three doctoral diplomas and two masters degrees. Zhou, a resident of Shenyang
City, admits it wasn’t easy getting this many diplomas, and reckons he spent
around 126,500 hours studying for them. Believe it or not, Zhou Baokuan is
currently studying to get his fourth doctoral degree, at Fudan University.
