KSA adopts a system with five working days a week starting on Sunday and ending on Thursday. The weekend is two days; Friday and Saturday. Sometimes, some Universities may conduct Quarterly and Final tests in key Curricula with unified content over the weekend.
KSA also adopts a system of three Official Holidays which are Eid Al-Fitr, Eid Al-Adha, and National Day. The Academic year often includes a one week break in the Middle of each Semester, depending on the timing of other Official Holidays such as Eid Al-Fitr, Eid Al-Adha, and National Day.
