How can I be supported while taking assessments during Ramadan and Eid?
This year, Ramadan falls during the Semester Two teaching period and ends during the Spring holiday. We are aware fasting may have an impact on preparation and submission of coursework and revision. You may find it challenging to manage your academic and personal commitments while observing Ramadan.
As different people manage their observance of Ramadan in different ways, students concerned about the impact of Ramadan on their studies are encouraged to speak to their Personal Tutor and department as soon as possible and familiarise themselves with the Mitigating Circumstances guidance.
- Your name
- Student ID number
- The date/time, module codes/titles of the exam assessments
If you become unwell during your exam or your ability to complete an assessment of any type might be, or has been, adversely affected by an unforeseen circumstance, you should apply for mitigating circumstances as soon as it's possible for you to do so.
Important to know: If you need further support, or have further queries, get in touch with our Muslim Chaplains; contact details can be found on our Chaplaincy webpages.
