Nope not yet. I'm waiting til after my prelims to decide if I'm going to take a gap year or not.

Platinumki - I think they threaten to not let us sit the exam if we're wearing jeans but everything else is fine. My drama exam is the last one of the year at school I believe and there's only the three of us sitting it so I doubt we're going to be very serious about it
They can't make you not sit - it would be such bad press, for one.


LOCAL SCHOOL BANS TOP PUPIL FROM SITTING EXAM FOR NOT WEARING A TIE

The school would get you as a fail on their record they wouldn't like it. You have officially left school by the exams (or we have, anyway) - be a man.

I wear my regular school uniform *shirt and trousers* and wear my jacket if it was in jan I usually take it off during the exam along with my watch I found out that I feel miuch more comfortable if I took my watch and put it infront of me on the desk ,so I wear stuff under the school shirt so that I wont get cold

I actually read a headline in a local paper like that last year. A boy was wearing the wrong coloured trousers and the school made him go home and change before his science GCSE, so he only had very little time to do the exam.

(Original post by official word as found on random college website)
For women, this means a dark skirt or trousers, dark stockings and shoes or boots, a white blouse and a black ribbon...

I can't believe so many schools make you wear uniform during exams. It's so ridiculously unfair given that you'll probably do better if you're comfortable. :rolleyes:

Hehe
I won't wear uniform, but I don't know what I'll wear. It's a long way off still! {tries to convince herself that prelims are also a long way off despite starting on Tuesday}
And we don't leave until our last exam at the earliest. So I'll be leaving on the first of June

I would really like to know as i get really sweaty (or is it that I glow?). I was thinking of buying those sports clothes (climacool?) which take sweat away and keep you cool (think it was a mistake to wear jeans last time!)
eh? sweaty? waaaaaaa?

I STILL, in the sixth form, have to wear my school uniform- a grey skirt, white shirt, black blazer and blue tie. oh, and 'sensible' black shoes.

It tends to be freeeeezing in our hall... but I just wear jeans and a t-shirt or something. Unlike my friend Rachael, who plans her exam wardrobe to the very last detail and occasionally buys new things to supplement it!! Some of our exams are in the local museum this year though, and it's warmer there, so we might have to reconsider

Meh, uniform's not that uncomfortable. You do lessons etc in it every day, so it would be weird not to wear it for exams.
