Teachers are calling for A-levels and GCSEs to be scheduled so as to help Muslim students on Ramadan fasts.
This year Ramadan starts on 29 June, but over next five years it will fall progressively more in the examination and revision season.
The Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) says the results of Muslim students, who fast from sunrise to sunset, could be adversely affected.
It is holding talks with exam boards to find ways to aid fasting Muslim pupils.
