Oxford University Exam Carnations

We are currently out of exam Carnation season.

Please get in touch if you would like to order Carnation sets 01865 240709.

It is tradition for students at The University of Oxford, to wear Carnations to all of their exams.

For the first exam wear white, pink is for every exam between and red for the last.

One explanation for this tradition is that initially a white carnation was kept in a red inkpot between exams, so by the last exam it was fully red.
