How do I Leaving Cert? Part 2

  1. Your graduation will be an emotion-filled night with really heartfelt conversations and there might even be some tears…but then you’ll all be really embarrassed about it because 2 weeks later you see each other again for the exams.
  2. Opening your exam papers and trying to predict what’s going to come up this year doesn’t count as study.
  3. Geography students: learn off the Sue Honan revision book and you’ll be fine.
  4. You’re focusing so much on the poetry part of the English paper that you’re forgetting the story/essay is worth 25%.
  5. Don’t be the fool I was and focus so much on the poetry that you panicked when it didn’t appear on Paper 1 (if you don’t understand why it’s ridiculous to panic over that, you should probably open your exam papers and start taking this thing seriously)
  6. Sticking in song lyrics to your story is a clever plan, but an even cleverer plan is stealing the storyline to a book you’ve read and tweaking it to suit the title (I stole a chapter from Stephen King’s ‘Salems Lot’ and guess who got an A1)
  7. Someone is going to cry after the maths exam.
  8. Avoid History students before and after their exam because that is the kind of panic you do not need to surround yourself with.
  9. It’s best not to mention to your mother you left your exam after an hour.
  10. It’s even better not to leave your exam after an hour.
  11. Don’t overdo the ‘Granny lit a candle for me’ jokes the night before exams.
  12. It’s gotten to the point where you need to stop blaming your lack of knowledge on how terrible your teacher was and just sit down and learn it.
  13. I hate to break it to you, but the exams aren’t actually the worst part of the Leaving Cert; wait til the night before the results come out and you’ll know what I’m talking about.
  14. Don’t steal the debs money. Don’t be that person.
