Norwegian school thoughtfully accommodates drunken students.
Students at a Norwegian school are to be given an extra two hours in bed each morning next month - to help them cope with their hangovers.
A school in Rogaland says students can skip their first two lessons during their celebrations in the run-up to their final exams.
Final year students traditionally spend much of the three weeks before their exams at a series of drunken parties.
Known as the 'RUSS' celebrations, the 18-year-olds party in special buses kitted out with beds, bars and music systems.
But the parties take their toll. Last year there were reports of students falling asleep while their exam papers were being handed out.
