After convening on Tuesday, Saudi Arabia's government approved a proposal that brings several changes to the country's official school year calendar for the next five academic years, Gulf News reported. 

The proposal was originally submitted by the country's Council of Economic and Development Affairs and under it, the upcoming academic year will begin on September 17 and end on May 15, a day before the holy month of Ramadan. 

The newly approved law means that "students in Saudi Arabia will not be attending classes during the fasting month of Ramadan in 2018 and 2019."

It also decrees that in the coming few years, all end of year exams will be held following Eid, rather than before the holy month

Students this year will only have official days off on the kingdom's national day (September 24) and during a one week mid-year break that begins on January 12. 

"The one-week breaks in the middle of the semesters have been canceled and the students will study for 15 weeks in the first semester and 15 weeks in the second semester, with a total of 167 days," Gulf News wrote. 

The latest changes:

Complete meltdown on social media

As soon as news of the latest decisions began to make the rounds online, it led to a meltdown of the sorts among Saudi students on Twitter. 

"It's titled: No holidays"

Some students just can't even

Others wish they can unsee this

Current mood...

Not everyone hates the new calendar though

"The best thing is that they canceled the mid-term vacations and exempted us from studying during Ramadan."  

Some actually think it's great

"This new academic calendar is great. The most important thing is that we won't have to sit through finals in Ramadan."  

Others believe the new law doesn't change anything when it comes to the quality of education

"Adding an hour to the school day and canceling days off are all decisions that change nothing when it comes to the actual quality of education."  

"Low quality of education isn't an issue you solve by adding more stressors on students... we've got to focus on quality rather than on time and quantity"
