Thursday, at the only German internet-school two teen stars passed their German exam. Where Bill and Tom appear, there are usually crowds of freaking out fans. But here, everything happened in secret.
He had few friends in school. Usually he was in a bad mood early in the morning and it was even worse in the afternoon because the school bus stopped at every tiny village around Magdeburg. It was only after two hours, at half past four that the bus stopped at his bus stop. No, the every day school life annoyed Bill Kaulitz to death ever since. His twin brother Tom felt the same, by the way.
That's why Bill and Tom decided to do their high school graduation at the only internet school in Germany: The web individual school in Bochum. Thursday, they passed their final exam in German there.
For no matter how big their success is, the twins are bound to visit school by the law. And a normal school life would've been impossible anyway. There was too much buzz around the boys at the school they visited two years ago.
But whoever expected a huge buzz in Bochum was bitterly disappointed. Scenes of crazy, screaming fangirls around the unspectacular building near the Bochum main station were something the teachers didn't experience. For the Kaulitz brothers were writing their exam under absolute secrecy. Only the black van parking nearby and wearing the "TH" sign on it was hinting at the fact that the better half of the four man band Tokio Hotel is passing their exams here today. A reporter somehow found out the news and is now lurking nearby.
Since this school year the two brothers are enlisted at the web individual school - just like children of managers, diplomates and kids who refused to go to school for years. But the approximately 40 kids are learning alone - for there is no class room, of course. Every student receives their tasks via e-mail. Individually designed for each student. But of course they have to pass exams - and a teacher is watching them. Bill Kaulitz is extatic about the concept, as he recently told the website jetzt.de : "It's like correspondence degree course."
The female fans of course found out about the "school change" of their superstars. For a long time, the school's homepage was flooded with messages. At some point the server was simply on overload.
