Local officials at five Norwegian schools have rescheduled their midterm exams so students can attend a string of upcoming Justin Bieber concerts.

Ministry of Education and Research representatives fear devoted Bieber fans in the outer Alesund region will skip class to travel to the city of Oslo, where the Baby hit-maker is set to hit the stage for two shows later this month, so they have alter their testing schedules to accommodate ticket-holding teens.

Education minister Kristin Halvorsen tells the Associated Press, "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."
