I think the sheet Dr. Lavelle gives on the exams says the conversion is 273.15 so I would suggest using that

I would also suggest you using 273.15 to avoid any discrepancies in your answer.

The things is, even in his solutions for past exams he just puts 273 instead of 273.15, so can someone please ask?

I think it would be best to use 273.15 and then for the final answer just truncate if necessary for the number of sig figs.
