Yes you are right. super must be the first statement in a subclass constructor. In the above situation you can just say that the constructor in the subclass also throws the same exception.

super() must be the 1st statement. Hence the only way a subclass constructor handles the exception is by declaring that it throws it, in such case the method which instantiates this class must handle or declare exception. See this example:
