School regulations can sometimes be a little too strict and can even force a sick one to take the final. Just like this kid who in eighth grade was not allowed to skip the final even though he had cancer. But his teacher came to the rescue at the end and told him not to study for the final.
Someone on Reddit shared a story from her school life when a kid from her class was diagnosed with cancer. The kid missed many classes and wasn't in the condition to give the final. But the school administration was not going to let him skip the final because he had missed too many days. His teacher tried to convince the administration but they didn't bother. The teacher was not left with much choice so she did something pretty awesome.
