Flexibility is given for its commencement by universities in case of overlap with preparatory students exams, with results to be announced before the start of the new academic year.
- For first-stage students, any shortfall in the first semester will be compensated by utilizing the spring break (first week) and potentially having classes on Saturdays, if necessary.
- Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha holidays are taken into consideration if they coincide with exam days, and also through Saturdays if needed.
