Interestingly, Almaz was pregnant and was expected to give birth before exams began.

However, exams were postponed due to Ramadan. Merely hours before she was supposed to appear for her first exam, she went into labor.


Gave birth to a boy, wrote exam after 30 minutes

Almaz was rushed to a hospital where she gave birth to a healthy baby boy. However, she was determined to appear for the exam. So, just 30 minutes after giving birth, she wrote the exam.

It was her husband, Tadese Tulu, who convinced the school to grant her special permission.

She appeared for English, Amharic and Maths examinations at the hospital.
