A school leader's guide to Ramadan in 2019 and its impact on SATs and GCSEs

This year, 2019, Ramadan – a month-long period of Islamic prayer, fasting, self-control and goodwill to others – and the test and exam season coincide; this pattern of coincidence is likely to continue for the next couple of years. This year, Ramadan is predicted to start on the evening of Sunday 5 May, depending on sight of the moon, and will end on Tuesday 4 June. 

The potential implications of this are outlined in this advice and guidance paper.
