Relief after hectic day as students enter home stretch
There was some relief at reaching the halfway point for Leaving Cert students in Loreto College.
After Maths Paper 2 and Irish Paper 1, students at the Dublin city school were relieved at the end of a hectic day. Rachel Mullaly from Ballsbridge called the Higher Maths paper "funky".
"They didn't ask us geometry, compared to other years. They put it into another question," she said. "There were no straightforward theorems either." However, Rachel and her friend Helen Brady were a lot more happy with the topical Irish essays.
"The essay titles were really nice - very broad," Helen said. "They were really relevant as well. There was one about 1916, there was another about refugees and big problems in the world."
Meanwhile, fellow Higher Irish student Sinead Tobin said: "You couldn't have been totally unprepared for it. There were some nice essay titles."
Helen and Rachel hope to study Law in UCD after the exams, while Sinead hopes for a career in science.
