Does a student who is thinking of performing the duty of hajj that is fard need to go to hajj by leaving his school or does he need to attend his school?

Dear Brother / Sister,
Hajj becomes fard for a person when its conditions are present in him. It is necessary for a person for whom hajj is fard to go to hajj that year. If he delays it to the following years, he becomes a sinner. The imams of three madhhabs unanimously agree on it.
However, a person who fulfills this duty when he is alive, he is freed from this sin. If he dies before he performs hajj, he becomes a sinner even if he bequeaths hajj to be performed for him.
It is necessary for a person to have enough time to go to hajj and to return for hajj. Therefore, if hajj prevents a person from attending his school, he can delay his hajj and perform it as soon as his school finishes.
