Here is my question, however.
Q: Under what conditions would you allow "religious reasons" as a valid excuse to have an alternate time for a midterm? I was guilty of this twice, for our midterms for a certain class were scheduled for 7 PM Friday, which as a religious Jew I could not fathom being able to make. Would you ever allow a compromise, such as the same exam being given and taken a few hours prior? The immensely kind professor who did so had to write the exams a day early because of this.
