Sam Day: Students don’t need exam advice... but parents do!
All the Junior and Leaving Cert students who trudged off to their opening exam this morning were weighted down by lots of things, most especially stress, expectation – theirs and their parents – and enough advice to raise the Titanic and sink it again.
So, leaving the students out of it for a moment, I have advice for the mammies, daddies and even well-intentioned grannies instead.
And you might not like all of it. But these exams aren’t about you.
