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.

Maths P1 – #JC2017 – Maria Hayes

Maria Hayes – Scoil Ruain Killenaule Higher Level To sum this paper up in one sentence, I would say “It was a stiff paper!” Apart from the 3 questions which stumped me the paper was very doable. Ratios, functions, sequences, algebra and factorising all came up in the paper, like you’d expect. Ratios, exponential sequences […]
