A total of five schools in Norway have decided to postpone their midterm exams so the students could attend a concert of their favorite music star. If you thought this was a nice gesture, just wait until you hear who that music star is. Well, you read the title, so you already know it it's todays most popular and most hated pop sensation, Justin Bieber himself.
Although the Norwegians are known for the biggest number of black metal bands in the world, it would seem that the Bieber fans are also massively present. According to various reports, young Canadian star is extremely popular in Norway, and is scheduled for a double performance in the capital of Oslo on April 16 and 17.
With the Bieber-mania sweeping the nation and teenage girls fighting to see the young singer, the schools found the decision to reschedule midterm exams as perfectly reasonable, expressing their concern over the ability of their students to focus during such an exciting period.
"I am concerned that students should be concentrating when they take tests and midterms. The local schools have the responsibility to schedule the local midterms, and if they think there is any reason to change the dates, they have authority to do so. We've all been 14-years-old and know that interests can be intense," Norway's education minster Kristin Halvorsen told the Associated Press.
