High school students in Germany have gathered tens of thousands of signatures in an online petition to complain about an "unfair" final English exam, saying the test was much harder than in previous years. By Sunday, the students from the southwestern state of Baden-Wuerttemberg had gathered almost 36,000 signatures – even though only 33,500 people took last month's statewide exam.The final high school exams in Germany – called the Abitur – are a rite of passage that all students who want to enter university have to pass.Often schools will cancel all regular classes for younger students during the tests so the Abitur students won't be disturbed.
