TWITTER has been flooded with teen angst yesterday after news that One Direction's Australian tour next year collides with end of year exams for high school students.

The UK boy band, who have been nothing short of a sensation among female teens worldwide, was originally scheduled to tour Australia in September, but fans woke up to the news yesterday that a scheduling conflict has pushed back the concerts by one month, placing it in direct conflict with HSC and VCE exams.

Rather than kicking off their Australian tour on September 11, 2013, One Direction's concerts will now begin in mid-October, only two days after the HSC written exams begin in NSW.

Fans of the band, which comprises Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Harry Styles and Zayn Malik, have taken to Twitter to express their dismay in stereotypical teen style.

The sheer number of tweets has made "HSC" a trending topic in Australia.
