The Canadian pop star is scheduled to perform in the Norwegian capital on 16th and 17th April stoking fears that some students in remote schools would skip midterm exams due to take place at the same time.

Minister Kristin Halvorsen says schools have the right to change dates for midterms exams and that the ministry does not intend to intervene.
