A male student at Adelaide University in Australia may be allowed to retake a recent exam due to his supposed “period pain,” 7News Adelaide is reporting:

University officials were supposedly “seething” over the student’s excuse, but claimed they must consider it since he presented a legitimate medical certificate signed by a real doctor. However, the school’s website claims all such exemptions are at the discretion of the school. Officials say they are still investigating the matter.

While this guy is clearly gaming the system, it’s worth noting that a recent highly-unscientific survey from VoucherCloud.com found that 26-percent of British men believe they suffer from a monthly “man period” similar to what women experience during their menstrual cycle. It’s worth noting that because it’s hilarious, not because its accurate.
