Sabbath Exam Exemption Letters

A practical way you can encourage your University students to honour the Sabbath during their examination periods is to offer them letters supporting their request for exemption for sitting their exams on a Sabbath. Most Universities have a policy that permits an exam to be rescheduled for a suitable alternate day provided they can provide a letter from their pastor that confirms the student is a church attender, and that sitting the exam would be a violation of their beliefs.

Here is a sample letter from the Caboolture SDA church that you can copy and paste, and edit to suit your congregation.
