History – #JC2017 – Ellen Kenny

Ellen Kenny​ – Meánscoil Mhuire Longford I thought history went really well today. The mock exam was definitely a good prediction for what would come up in the real thing, like how a person living in Rome came up for both exams and the renaissance came up for both in question 6. I was aRead More

History – #JC2017 – Luke Casserly

Luke Casserly – St. Mel’s College History is by far my favourite subject, so I was looking forward to this paper. I started off with Q6 and did Social Change in the 20th Century which I feel is pretty much common sense, I just hope I wasn’t too vague! Then I did International Relations inRead More

French – #JC2017 – Luke Casserly

Luke Casserly – St. Mel’s College I’ve done pretty well in French since first year so I wasn’t overly worried about todays paper. It all started with the listening which I always find pretty tricky.

History – #LC2017 – Gabriele Grudyte

Gabriele Grudyte – St. Mary’s Holy Faith Secondary School, Killester So the long awaited history exam paper is finally over. My hand is throbbing, feels like it’s going to fall off. But it was all worth it. The cramming the night before, will hopefully pay off. The minute the examiner gives out the the papersRead More

French – #JC2017 – Maria Hayes

Maria Hayes – Scoil Ruain Today’s French exam began with the listening comprehension. I am very happy with how this section of the exam went! I could understand the speakers much more easily than in the mocks, thankfully! Next I began the comprehensions which put me in the French ‘zone’. I was happy with mostRead More
