Religious Observance during Exams

information for LSE Staff

Arrangements can usually be made for students who cannot sit exams due to religious observance

If, due to the observance of a religious holiday, a student is unable to sit exams on specific dates, they should email the Exams and Course Selection Team as soon as possible, and before the publication of the general course by course timetable, to discuss alternative arrangements.  This particuarly includes students who celebrate Orthodox Christmas and who are expected to sit January exams. 

When emailing students should include: 

  • your name
  • your student ID number
  • the courses you are taking
  • the dates on which you are unable to attend exams
  • details of your religious observance (you may be asked to provide a supporting letter from a religious leader)

Events such as weddings or other personal appointments do not constitute exceptional reasons for exam timetabling purposes.

Ramadan sometimes overlaps with the summer exam period. Guidance about sitting exams during Ramadan can be found here
