    I'm thinking about booking tickets for a concert on the Sunday prior to the bank holiday Monday in May. However, if I could have exams on the Monday I don't want to go to a concert the night before.
    So has anyone ever had an exam on a bank holiday? Are there ever exams on bank holidays?

    Thanks

    If you're doing the IB, very likely there will be exams on the may day bank holiday, as the UK are the ONLY country not to have the may day bank holiday on May Day itself, unless it's on a Monday. As all exams need to be sat on the same date, the IB have been known to schedule exams for the May Day Bank Holiday before now....

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news

    No, you'll be fine. AS tend to start mid-may/June anyway, don't they?
