Just moments ago I stepped foot into the warm sun of a Tuesday afternoon a very pleased student.
The higher level Irish exam paper offered a range of questions on well learned prose, again in the drama section we were set the challenge to describe two main characters in detail for 20 marks each. No surprises here. Moving forward I was pleasantly amazed to be questioned on such easy poems like the childish ‘Gealt’ or the straight forward poem for love of nature “Faoiseamh a Gheobhadsa”. The final stretch proved a little more challenging with the C section of Cesit 3, but how can we not except a challenge after such a wonderful paper! Every one’s worst nightmare Stair Na Gaeilge followed… An Rúraíocht! Again a banker of a question. However, choosing another question in this section was a little more demanding!
I did find myself falling asleep during the exam this morning, it appears sleep deprivation has indeed caught up with me! Currently I am preparing for the Business Exam, More happy surprises I hope!
