Dates of observance and exams

Over the next several years, Ramadan will coincide with the Universities exam period. Below is a table outlining the dates of Ramadan and when it will overlap with revision and/or exams.

* Please note that dates are approximate (depending on initial sighting of the moon). As the Islamic calendar is based on lunar months, the end of Ramadan can only be declared when a new moon has been sighted.
