Leaving Cert Japanese

Shahed – Higher Level At long last, the final exam! Being the only student in the whole school felt very strange, to say the least. The exam wasn’t too tough. There were three comprehension questions, with questions in both English and Japanese, and plenty of grammar questions. There were also two essay questions on either […]

Leaving Cert Business

Shay – Higher Level It was my last test. I walked into the room with fear on my face but thankfully that changed. I opened the paper to the 10 lovely short questions, relatively easy.   Then came the ABQ, which was considerable easy compared to previous years. I had to do 4 questions , […]

Leaving Cert French

Brendan – Higher Level Tablets and tattoos were probably not on the minds of many candidates this morning as they entered their exam hall, but they certainly were by this afternoon. The comprehensions were as to be expected. One related to a family circus and the other to strict parents. Question 1 was about whether […]

Leaving Cert History

Aoife – Higher Level Well, where do we start.  I was happy enough with the documents, they are always the easier question and I do enjoy the Belfast Blitz. It was a nice question. I was a lot less pleased to see Sunningdale show up with the Anglo-Irish treaty, considering I only studied the first […]

Leaving Cert Maths Paper 2

Keelyn – Higher Level: The one word I would use to describe this exam is better. Paper two was nicer than paper one. Some of the questions were quite tricky especially the last long question, about a clock of all things. There was a lot of probability and statistics. I’m confident I passed it but […]

Declan – Higher Level I like Geography, so I was positive going into todays exam. I started off by doing the short questions, which usually are fine. However, I felt some of the questions were a bit tricky and I did guess I few… We have a selection and get marked on 10 in total […]

Leaving Cert Maths Paper 1

 Keelyn – Higher Level Although certain parts of the paper were doable, some of the questions were quite mean especially considering there was no mention of financial maths or algebra. It was mainly to do with arithmetic series and integration. Let’s just hope paper two will be more straightforward Brendan – Ordinary Level Area and Volume […]
