#HomeEc – #JC2017 – Emily Reilly

  #JC2017 #HomeEc Emily Reilly – Meánscoil Mhuire Longford I was overall happy enough with the home economics paper this year. I didn’t prepare myself much as I was too excited to finish up and was hoping to receive the B I got in the mock. The paper started off with Section A which consisted […]

History – #JC2017 – Olivia Whelan

Olivia Whelan – Meánscoil Mhuire Longford In all, I really enjoy history, but like many others, coming up to a history exam I always get nervous as it’s one of the more ‘bulky’ and ‘heavy subjects. History always has me under pressure the night before studying. I was really hoping there would be a good […]

Business – #JC2017 – Diego Brule

Diego Brule – Colaiste Einde Salthill Galway Business P1 & P2 If there was a single exam that scared the soul out of me, it was Business. Business was never my strong subject, strongly because of the high amount of memorisation that had to be done. The only topic I ever liked about business was […]

Maths P2 – #JC2017 – Diego Brule

Diego Brule – Colaiste Einde Salthill Galway Paper two is the easier of the two, I said. It won’t be that hard, I said. Well, this maths paper 2 was just about the most confusing maths paper I’ve done up to now. When I first opened the exam at 9:30, my sleepy self immediately wanted […]

Geography – #JC2017 – Diego Brule

Diego Brule – Colaiste Einde Salthill Galway Higher Level Geography, geography. Geography has always been a gamble for me, partly because I’ve lived everywhere at this stage and have a fair amount of general geographic knowledge, and partly because I only study my favourite parts and hope they come up. And very luckily, Today’s short […]

English – #JC2017 – Diego Brule

Diego Brule – Colaiste Einde Salthill Galway Want me to be honest? I can say I almost didn’t prepare for English, solely because our teachers simply didn’t know what would come up(we’re the first generation to sit the reformed English JC) but hey, it actually didn’t go bad. (And if it did I can always […]

CSPE – #JC2017 – Diego Brule

Diego Brule – Colaiste Einde Salthill Galway Being a climate change activist, and a member of the ISSU, I went into this test pretty confident, although I really didn’t know what to expect.

Junior Cert Music

Keela – Higher Level After a bit of difficulty with the c.d player, music finally started. I found that the listening was quite easy for all sections. I liked that way that for the set work question they asked you what “Farandole” was so it gave away what the first answer was. I also found […]

Junior Cert Home Economics

Sophie – Higher Level My final exam, Home Economics. I started with the short questions. I could answer the sort of business question great. The short questions were manageable and I found I could answer them well. In the long questions I did Q1, Q3, Q4 and Q6. The predictable question one, nutrition. It was […]

Junior Cert Irish

Sophie – Higher Level Today was the Irish exam, everyone was terrified coming into school today. When we got paper 1, I had a quick read through it. At the beginning there was the two “Leamhthuiscint”s, they weren’t as bad as I thought they would be. But even before that there was the listening test, […]
