Exam students at Donabate Community College have mixed plans for the weekend – with some planning to stick the heads in the books and others taking some well earned relaxation.

Maths Paper 1 was the subject of the day for both Junior and Leaving Cert students.

The school’s student of the year Rebecca Nolan (18) said that she was happy with her honours level paper.

“I think it went well, I hope it did,” said Rebecca, who wants to study science in DCU next year.

“It was better than the example papers,” she added.

Her colleague Anna Halpin (18) was also reasonably happy with the honours level paper.

“It was better than the mocks. The last three questions were doable. It was good,” she said.

Sean Walsh (18) was confident following the exam, though he said maths was not a subject which he had spent a huge amount of time studying.

“It wasn’t that bad, it wasn’t as difficult as the previous years I thought.”

Sean also planned to take a break for the weekend. “I’m going to be watching the football,” he said.

Shauna O’Murphy (18) sat the ordinary level.

“I was very happy with it. There were questions on complex numbers and the USC,” she said.

She planned to study over the weekend.
