Girl Gives Birth While Taking Exam

In America, a girl who went into labour during an exam stayed to finish it.

Don't worry, she wasn't a school girl, she was 29-year-old Elana Nightingale Dawson. She wasn't some teenage girl having a baby because it wasn't in the UK.

I'm joking. There's no way we would have a headline like "School Girl Goes Into Labour During Exam" over here. As if our school girls will be taking exams.

Dawson wanted to finish her bar test in Illinois as quickly as she could despite starting the pregnancy process because she knew the results would not be valid unless the test was completed.

But labour can go on for about 20 hours. Just how long is this bar exam?

She told the Chicago Tribune: "I thought if I put my head in my hands and breathe deeply and do what I learned in class, I would get through it."

I assume that in the pregnancy class, not in the lawyer lessons. If you see your lawyer put his head in his hands and breathe deeply you know you're going to jail.

She added, "My goal was to get through the exam as fast as I could and leave, barring anything happening that made me think there was something more imminent going on."

I can't believe she got away with it. I once got told off for taking a calculator with me into a maths test. She smuggled in a whole second person!
