At the University of Reading we are currently giving consideration to holding exams on Saturdays.
I would be interested to hear whether you currently hold exams on Saturdays, and any difficulties this creates. In particular, how do you deal with students with special arrangements who need to sit in a room on their own? We would normally hold these exams in the student's department, but this would be considerably more difficult at the weekend.
Likewise, if your instituion has considered holding exams on Saturdays and decided not to, I would be interested to know the reasons for this.
Any comments would be much appreciated.
