Video: End in sight for Leaving Cert students
Today is potentially the last day of the Leaving Cert ... since all compulsory subjects finish today.
However, for the majority, the exams will extend over the next two weeks. All paper and practical tests are scheduled to finish on June 20.
Independent.ie asked students what they thought of the French exam today.
Many found it relatively 'standard' while others said it was a little easier than last year's exam. There was more scope in the essays and decent comprehensions, according to students today.
The focus for many now is the end of exams. And preparing for the ‘Leaving Cert holiday’ with friends. Yet this tradition seems to be a lot less prevalent this year.
Instead, many school finishers intend to stay at home and work for the summer.
As the exam timetable is a lot more sporadic from now on, no doubt many exhausted students will grab the chance to take a few days rest.
Nonetheless, there's still plenty of last-minute study time left!
