I thought 'tous' was pronounced 'too' unless it was used as a pronoun meaning 'all (of us/them)'.
But in the example:
Je veux que vous ayez tous votre exam.
'tous' is pronounced 'Toos'.
Is this correct? If so, why?
Yes , the pronunciation of tous is correct and should sound the 's' .
Take a look at the following lesson for further explanation:
Tout/tous/toute/toutes = Everything/all (of them)/whole/completely in French
Just another little point -
In your answer to Chris, it should be 'je ne le savais pas' as 'savoir' is a verb of state and you will hardly ever hear/see the passé composé used to say, 'I didn't know'.
It's a mistake I often read on this forum from students so just to put things right!
It is the same for verbs like être, sembler, paraître, croire, espérer...
Hope this helps!
