But I have a holy day in the middle of the exam period!

  1. Makerere University is a secular institution. It is the official policy of the University that all days in a week are considered working days. Staff and students are expected to conduct or attend lectures and examinations at scheduled times and days.
  2. Requests to accommodate a student’s religious creed by scheduling tests or examinations at alternative times shall not be entertained. Students who miss examinations or tests based on religious creed, should inform their respective Deans /Directors as soon as the timetable is published preferably two weeks before examinations so as to avoid being categorized as being absent without justifiable cause and a Course Grade of ABS shall be assigned to that Course(s).

You are, therefore, urged to respond to the academic work in the College/School/Institute even if it takes place on the respective days of worship.
