Religious Observance Request - Main Exam Periods

The extent to which the timetabling of central examinations can be adapted to meet specific religious requirements will vary from case to case but the University will make such special arrangements as are in its power, subject to the overriding requirements that the examinations must be scheduled within the published examination periods and that special arrangements for individual students must not disadvantage the majority.

The information above relates to the scheduling of the timetable within the main University exam periods only and any requests relating to assessment dates managed by departments should be directed to that department in the first instance and well in advance of the published date.

Examination Dates

Students making requests for special arrangements on religious grounds should recognise that, where it is possible, special measures designed to meet their needs may involve an unavoidable element of inconvenience, for example the requirement to remain incommunicado for a period of time.
