No doubt you will have heard of the fury and upset following the recent Leaving Certificate ordinary level maths paper 1.

Both teachers and students across the country have expressed their bitter disappointment regarding the paper. My daughter came home from school after the exam in tears. Indeed, the entire class was in tears. Having read the national media, it now appears that the disappointment was shared across the nation.

My daughter is a very hard worker and is attempting all honours subjects, with the exception of maths. For the last two years she has studied very hard to achieve her goals.
