    To do so

    Please, dear teachers,

    whether a teacher or professor says to his/her students about an exam that is about to be applied:

    Do not begin until you are told to do so.

    What does 'so' mean on that sentence? Could it be dropped?

    Thank you in advance!

    Re: To do so

    So refers to the whole sentence here: start with the exam

    It cannot be dropped.
