    It will depend on the job, some will be more understanding than others. It also depends on your contract, if you are on a 0 hour contract it will be easier to reduce your hours.

    like the above poster said, some will, some won't - if it's a deal breaker discuss it in the interview

    I worked two different jobs over A level exams, one I was fired from for refusing to work overtime until 2am the evening before a 9am exam... the other gave me as much time off as I wanted over exams and spent hours rearranging timetables so people could get as much pay as possible while having as many days as possible off before exams...from that job I can tell you that being happy to compromise helped a lot (and working somewhere there wasn't loads of staff), I was happy to come in right after an afternoon exam to get some hours done, or work a double shift - so that I could have the following 5 days off or whatever it was before my next exam, also having a good relationship with colleagues can mean people are more prepared to cover for you
