Upper case letters with accents

Hi there,

I just did one test and I got a half score because I dropped an accent from an upper case É. I learnt that you don't put accents on upper case letters somewhere before. What is the correct way? 

Thanks,

Frequently, accents are omitted with upper case letters. The académie française, however, advises to use them. Take your pick -- you'll see both versions.
