    Noranour, it is strange that they waited to tell her after the first half of the exam was already underway. And I wonder how often people look into their archaic rules to make sure they are followed exactly.

    These articles are very interesting to me! The one thing I want to say is that I am very appalled for someone to disturb someone during a stressful exam about her hijab. That is a sensitive issue and should of been discussed at the beginning if anything. It can give more stress on a person when they all ready have so much stress to begin with. I would be very very upset if that happened to me and would not be able to finish. That is completely unacceptable in my dictionary. I never even knew that such thing would be an issue in the US. It’s nice to get the heads up with this matter especially when it’s very clear we wear it for religious purposes.
