OSLO, Norway (April 3, 2013)--Five schools in the western part of Norway rescheduled midterm exams in order to allow students to attend Justin Bieber concerts in Oslo, Norway's Ministry of Education and Research said.
The Canadian pop star is set to perform in the Norwegian capital on April 16 and April 17, stoking concerns that some students in remote schools will skip midterm exams scheduled at the same time.
The ministry said Wednesday that five schools in the Alesund region about 230 miles northwest of Oslo rescheduled exams to accommodate students' wish to attend Bieber's concerts.
Minister Kristin Halvorsen says schools have the right to change dates for midterms exams and that the ministry does not intend to intervene.
