    Yes, deffo will be fasting. Used to fasting through exam season, not a problem for me personally i think exams are no excuse to miss a fast. I tend to eat a lot before starting my fast.

    Salam guys,

    As an A level student I'll be doing my A2 exams during Ramadan.

    My opinion on this is split between fasting and believing in Allah to help me through and not fasting because it make practical sense.

    At the end of the day God is most merciful and will surely understand?
    Another reason id feel its okay to not fast is as students, it's out occupation. If fasting affects our ability to perform them surely we should look to not, I mean if you were a doctor giving life saving surgery requiring intricate detail and fasting compromised your ability to perform the surgery then surely through common sense it would be justified to not fast and make up for it at a later more appropriate date ?

    Just my opinions...

    Theres many of us muslims who have exams (I have my A2 exams) during Ramadan. My question is will you fast?

    I myself will miss out a fast on the day of an exam and I worked out I will only miss 5 which isn't too bad as I can make them up after. However I was considering fasting even on exam days because I feel as if Allah will give me the strength to pull through but then I thought Allah doesn't want to make things hard for us and obviously Ramadan is to strengthen your personal relationship with Allah so missing 5 fasts won't be too bad considering I have good intentions, and these exams are make or break so messing it up isn't an option as it will affect the rest of my life.

    So will you or will you not fast, either on exam days or the entire exam period, I was just curious to see what others are doing.
    Insha Allah, I will definitely fast because i just have two Papers(A2) and I believe Allah Almighty will give me strength. Anyways what are your subjects and when is your last paper? Good Luck for your papers!

    Definitely will be fasting in sh Allah ^^ i mean just imagine on the Day when He asks us what the reason was for why we didnt fast and we say 'sorry, had exams that day'😂
    I have the same reason on my mind and i will Insha Allah fast and the good thing for me is that i only have 2 exams. Good Luck for your exams!
