Mustafa Golzari started this petition to Examination Boards

Hi,

I am currently studying for my gcse exams. I am a follower of Islam. Instead of celebrating eid with my family, I will be sitting my maths exam. I don't think that's fair or considerate. After fasting for 30 days, Muslims celebrate the end by spending time with family and friends- it's the equivalent of Christmas you could say. So why is it OK to put exams on eid when we have a national holiday on Christmas? It shouldn't be.

I know there are many exams to consider and schedule but I think exam boards can be more considerate in this issue. Surely, making exams one day earlier won't make much of a difference to exam boards but to us Muslims it makes a HUGE difference. Ultimately it ruins Eid.

So, on behalf of more than 3 million Muslims who are residents of Great Britain, I request that you to sign this petition.

Let's make a difference!

Thank you
