General Tips 
1. Check your self .-- Always to a quick conscious check that you have all the elements of you uniform before leaving for school. cover belt shoes etc forgetting something is an automatic failure.
2. Never leave you uniform in your locker-- If you leave the uniform crumpled for an extended period of time wrinkles will form. if you hang it up properly (video) then you most likely won't have to iron it.
3. Measure the items--it Is very tempting to simply eyeball, don't do it. at first go according to the book measure it all out, and ask a friend to check if the measurement it correct while wearing the uniform.
4. For males, put on your shirt before you put on you pants-- this will just help you avoid hassle with trying to tuck the shirt in, after you put on the pants check your gig-line (video)
