Many Muslims will be taking exams in Ramadan this year. I am one of those taking A level exams. Do we still fast whilst studying and taking exams or is it permissible to take a few days off when it’s time for exams?
You are excused from fasting only if you suffer from a specific health condition and if you, due to such condition, find yourself extremely weak and unable to study at all while fasting. If this is the case skip your fasting and fast later after the exams. Before that, ask yourself sincerely if you fall in this category.
