#French – #LC2017 – Michelle Chiperi Aivazova

#LC2017 #French Michelle Chiperi Aivazova – Coláiste Einde This morning I woke up not being able to stomach breakfast. French for me was a bluff exam, one I could have seriously just wrote down what I knew. That’s what happened, the comprehensions were easy and the opinion pieces were all so easy I left an […]

#LC2017 #ClassicalStudies Sarah Ní Chonghaile – Ratoath College Honestly, I was delighted with this paper as the sculpture and painting questions were very straight forward.

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.
