Schools in Norway have rescheduled their exams because Justin Bieber is touring there - madness!
So, five schools in a fishing town called Ålesund in Norway have rescheduled their summer exams. Why?
Because Justin Bieber is performing in Oslo on 16 and 17 April.
I feel extremely old all of a sudden.
This would not have happened in my day. No. Way.
Not even if my history teacher was a massive fan of the back-then Bieber equivalent (Britney Spears? N Sync? Nope, neither of those choices were as rubbish as Biebs).
Now, I went to a pretty strict school, but I can’t imagine any school in the UK doing the same.
Remember all that cramming for GCSEs? The BBC Bitesize ads on telly, and the fear they put into your very soul when you were watching Neighbours instead of writing physics sums on Post-It notes like you should have been?
Not to forget the moment your dad did his nut in when he realised you hadn’t done, um, anything in Spanish class for the last three years (or maths. Or chemistry) and were probably going to crash and burn, before putting you on house lockdown (maybe that was just me).
Talk about being relaxed, Norway.
We find it regrettable, but we preferred to move forward the Norwegian exams to avoid problems,’ said headmaster Roar Aasen of Blindheim Secondary School.
Beliebers, I’m going to get all preachy now.
You’re stupid if you pick Justin over your studies.
You should be revising, cramming, and poring over your schoolbooks. If you mess up your exams because you were too busy wailing over Bieber, you’ll have nobody to blame but yourselves.
Believe me, Justin isn’t going to care when you get an F in economics. He’ll be laughing all the way to the bank.
Sad, but true…
