Honours Maths II a ‘relief’ after Friday shocker

Independent.ie reporters

Honours maths students were able to breathe a sign of relief today as Paper II turned out to be far less challenging that Paper I last week.

The State Exams Commission has been forced to defend Friday’s Leaving Cert paper, which shocked the 8,500 honours students who sat it.

Both students and teachers labelled the described toughest in many years and incredibly challenging.

But the Commission claimed it was satisfied that the questions were "within the parameters of the syllabus".

Today’s paper II was described as being ‘’fair’’ and a ‘’relief’’ by students.

Almost 40,000 students sat the ordinary level Paper II, which had no major surprises.
