Sam Day: Students don’t need exam advice... but parents do!
Published 08/06/2011 | 11:11
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.
