Examinations occur throughout the year, and can take place Monday to Saturday. The University recognises that the examination timetable might clash with religious observance.
University exam diets are published in advance on the University website. You should alert Academic Registry to any dates that your religious observance might clash with University exams. You can do this by completing the ‘Religious Observance Form’ and submitting to firstname.lastname@example.org before the advertised deadlines.
Though the University will consider your request constraints placed on the timetable might make this impossible given the logistics of scheduling a very large numbers of examinations involving hundreds of students within a limited examination period. Where clashes with religious observances have been unavoidable you should contact your religious leader to obtain a special dispensation in order to attend your exam. If dispensation is not authorised by your religious leader then you should submit proof of religious observance requirements e.g. a letter on headed paper from your place of worship in order to support your application to defer your exam.
