So long England…

Exams to be taken earlier in the day to fit around Ramadan, exam boards say

    No, our leaders will come to their senses, they don’t want to see our culture replaced by Islam, no, not at all.

    • Yea;)

        They know, we know, it is far, far easier to control and change the behaviour of law-abiding folks (us), than it would be to apply the laws of the land to Islam’s sedition, especially when it is the gov’t itself inviting and enabling Islam to be uncontrollable, to indulge in violence.

      The really funny part is they were all Engineers or Doctors. hahahahahah

    • Shebel

      There is no sense of humour in criticising Islam.

        It’s hard to make fun of something like Islam that itself is history’s most deadly joke ever, made real.

    My, my, they certainly shut the comments on that one down quick, didn’t they.

    And this when the Muzz are about 5% of the population. Once they hit 10%, Ramadan will be mandatory for all infidel pupils.

    Why not just give a passing grade -if you are Muslim.
    No need to attend classes—
    What degree would like ?

    According to today’s Daily Mail, the proposed changes are to bring the exams forward to an earlier date (thus less revision time unless it is pre-planned a year before) and earlier in the day – morning rather than afternoon. With Ramadan coming 11 days earlier each year this could last for around 4 or 5 years. Unless I have misunderstood, this is to apply principally to key subjects like Maths and English.

    Incidentally, the Islamic expert is WRONG. Islam has a purely lunar calendar but Judaism does not. The Jews insert an extra month into their calendar every few years to prevent the calendar drifting away from the meaning of the Holydays. The autumn festivals celebrate (in part) the main autumn harvest while the spring festivals celebrate (again in part) the very beginning (“first fruits”) of the spring harvest. Pentecost celebrates the summer harvest, of which the spring festivals are only the first fruits.

    It would make no sense if the calendar drifted too far from the reality of the harvest cycle which is dominated by the effect of the sun. (Thanks for the bumper harvest n January does not make sense.) Thus the Hebrew calendar is a Solar-Lunar calendar with lunar length months but with the requirement to nudge the calendar into line with the obvious effect of the sun. Our calendar is a Solar calendar which allows the phases of the moon to drift through the month.

    Either the Islamic expert is IGNORANT or he is a LIAR in trying to link the two calendars together.

    They can start exams earlier in the day, but mahometans will still grumble if they don’t still get their customary exam grades “adjustment” to recognize their Ramadan handicap.

    Don’t require Muslims to take tests, just pass them. Otherwise they’ll get angry.
