Justin Bieber's name was spelled wrong on the Leaving Cert English Paper 1

It’s “I before E, except after C” – everyone knows that.

WELL, THIS IS embarrassing.

In one of the questions on Wednesday’s Higher Level English Paper 1, Justin Bieber’s name was spelled incorrectly.

We imagine there are some pretty red faces in State Examination Commission over this flouting of the “I before E, except after C” rule.

Get it together, lads.
