English – #LC2017 – Michelle Chiperi Aivazova

  Michelle Chiperi Aivazova – Colaiste Einde Salthill Galway I woke up this morning feeling quite sick to the stomach, much like the thousands of other students sitting exams today. The morning went by in a blur, eating and getting ready and hearing everyone chatter and panic before the exam. I have a tactic- avoid […]

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.

JC French

Roisin (Higher Level) Today we had French and history. The day started with French and I felt that it went pretty well. The listening section was easy enough; I think I only missed one or two answers. The reading comprehensions were all fine, except for number nine which was pretty tricky. The letter wasn’t too […]

LC Irish Paper 1

Ailbhe (Higher Level/Ardleibhéal) Well after that funny little listening comprehension (clean toilets yeah right!) and the Oxegen newsletter just in to my mailbox, I don’t feel like I am now 3.5 subjects deep into the abyss of the Leaving Cert. As I leave the great news to sink in, I’ll give the blow by blow […]
