    Question Casual or School Uniform to HSC exam

    I feel like this gets asked every year, but can you wear casual to HSC exam?

    I know some schools allow it/have rules about it and NESA don't have rules about it, and since exams are run by NESA not the school, the school can't stop you from completing your exam... right?

    What did/are you going to wear?

    lmao why not take the easy way and just wear school uniform!
    Is it really that big of a deal?
    We have more important things to worry about like sitting the actual exam...

    Some uniforms can be uncomfortable and this could potentially impact results and increase stress. Minor, but it may matter for some.

    Firstly, wtaf.
    Secondly, schools design uniforms so they are indeed comfortable for all.

    I'd try and check with your school. No point getting in trouble before your exam, can really put you of your game.

    Re: Casual or School Uniform to HSC exam

    My school had a pretty strict code, you had to have intact school uniform (a lot got destroyed during muck up day) and you needed to be clean shaven. I saw some students getting shaved outside the exam room before being allowed to enter, or being told to get a haircut (often rushing to the barber in <10 minutes). The bottom line is it depends on your school and yes they will take it seriously.

    Maybe it's just me, but given the choice, I would much rather be wearing loose, casual clothing rather than wearing a tie, belt, and have my shirt tucked in etc. for an exam. My school allows year 12s to dress casually probably for this reason...
