Request for religious observance and exams
If you are unable to take an examination on the day it is timetabled for religious reasons (e.g. a major festival or Friday Prayers) you must contact email@example.com.
Arrangements for examinations and assessments will take your needs into account as far as possible in respect of the observance of a religious day of rest or holy days although it is not possible to guarantee to avoid all such days.
You are required to notify us of your inability to carry out work or undertake assessments on holy days as soon as possible after enrolment and by no later than six weeks from the start of the programme.
