Seme says the university told her she could take her tests when she is ready.

University students across South Africa are taking exams in the next few weeks.

Semenya won the 800 meters at the Berlin world championships in August. Before the final, the IAAF announced it had ordered gender tests and it is still waiting for the experts’ verdict on whether she can continue competing as a woman.
