The Leaving Cert season is upon us again, now that Easter is over.

The pressure will be boiling over. Mothers will be making special soups made from lentils and goodness vegetables to build up the students. Fathers will be driving to daily grinds and pop-up revision courses.

The Nana will burn more wax in the church than the quality control department in Madame Tussauds and the grandfather's annual Leaving Cert dream will see him kicking the duvet up to the ceiling from involuntary leg movements brought on by the trickiness of question 7 in the Maths Paper 2, of 1953.
