Does anyone have to wear their uniform for exams?

I thought all schools got to wear own clothes for exams (I'm talking like schools and 6th forms with uniforms, not colleges where you wear own clothes all the time), but some of my friends from other schools have to stay in their uniform whilst doing their exams!

(Sorry to be adding to the plethora of uniform-related threads here that all seem to have been started by the same person, just interested to know).

Do you have to wear your school uniform, or have you been allowed to burn yours and wear your own clothes?

Yeah we have to wear ours despite having already left (year 13).
We do. In fact if we turn up in non-uniform we'd be sent home and so wouldn't even be able to sit the exam
Yep. It's REALLY annoying. Technically I don't even go to the school anymore as in I'm no longer a student there, but they still make me wear the uniform

Yeah, I do, but it's not so bad. You get used to it.

We did in school. And if you weren't wearing a jumper or even a tie, you weren't allowed to sit the exam. It was so warm too!
yep :s-smilie: and today I sat an exam when every one else is off because its an inservice day today :mad: belive me i got funny looks at the bus stop today, wearing school uniform when all the schools are closed :laugh:

No! Our sixth form has a dress code (smart clothes, e.g. shirt and trousers) but no uniform, so we have to comply with the dress code during exams (although people do come in with jeans and stuff, they're not exactly going to be thrown out are they?)

I had to in year 11. :rolleyes:
Yep, we still have to wear full uniform for exams. It's not so bad; I feel like it gets me into a school mindset and I'm ready to work. Bit of a b!tch when it's warm though.

Really? My school is a bit chavvy and we all wrote all over (and a lot of people burned) our school uniforms when we were told we could leave. We don't have a sixth form at the school though, so we don't need our uniforms for next year :p:

Our school's sixth form didn't have a uniform as such, we had to wear a white shirt with a dark suit and the school tie. Girls wore business suits with either black or white blouse.
We have to but we're allowed to take ties and jackets off once we're in the exam hall.:cool:

That's exactly why we have to wear ours for exams :laugh:
:yes: we do
I had to wear my uniform at secondary school and to my exams, but we didn't have to wear uniform in college, therefore didn't have to in exams.

That's ridiculous really what if it was say 29oC? They'd make people suffer by not letting them take it off?

In mine as we now have the summer uniform we don't have to wear our blazers but still have to wear a tie.

I've never heard of a school where you can wear non-uniform for exams.
