Woman completes university exam while giving birth

A WOMAN has been described as "strong" and "amazing" after completing a university exam while giving birth.

Tommitrise Collins completed the online test after going into labour at Cliseum Medical Centre in Macon, Georgia.

The 21-year-old told Fox 5 she was only able to take the test on that day.

"It took me four to five hours after opening the test to try and put the pain to the side and do it, so I wouldn't have to do it later and could enjoy my newborn," Ms Collins said.

The Middle Georgia State University student finished the exam in under two-hours and passed with a B grade.

Her sister, Shanell Brinkley Chapman, posted a picture of the feat on Facebook saying: "This is what you call 'Strong Priorities'.

This is what you call "Strong Priorities". Contractions 3 minutes apart and still takes her Psychology Test! You are going to be a great Mom baby sis!
