File photo dated 24/05/10 of A-level students sitting an A-level maths exam inside a sports hall as teenagers across the country are today waking up to the A-level results which will allow them to make the big decisions that will shape their future. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Issue date: Thursday August 15, 2013. Around 300,000 students in England, Wales and Northern Ireland will be nervously heading to school this morning to pick up their grades. For many, success in the exams will mean a prized place at university, an apprenticeship or other training scheme, while those who achieved less than expected are likely to be considering their options.

Have your say

It has been suggested that exams that occur during Ramadan should be moved for the convenience of some students.

This is blatant submission to Sharia and once again we see the Establishment preparing to grovel before their Islamic masters. So what if exams occur during Ramadan? No one forces them to starve themselves other than their own people due to their primitive beliefs. The exams have always fallen right at the heart of the hay fever season, but sufferers just had to carry on regardless. The exams are when they are and no allowances will be made for primeval superstitions. These people now live in a Christian country and Ramadan is not a Christian festival. We are no longer unwilling to stand up for our beliefs and our laws and instead bow down other faiths.
