This thread is for discussion of the Mocks. Please restrict ALL discussion of the 2012 Mocks to this thread. Other threads may be deleted or closed.
A few simple rules to ensure this thread runs as smoothly as possible:
NO POSTING OF MOCK PAPERS: Any posts of the actual papers will be deleted and the user posting them will be banned. This also applies to linking to scans of the papers.
USE SPOILER TAGS: If you are referring to any specific material on any Mock paper, make sure to use spoiler tags so that people who don't want to know what's on a given paper won't see. A spoiler looks like this: Spoiler: Your text here. To use spoiler tags, highlight the text you want to spoil, and click the icon.
DO NOT ASK FOR PMs: If you have something to share, share it with everyone.
The Mock exams are useful for evaluating your strengths and weaknesses, practising exam techniques and timing, and giving you an idea of the course material you still have to cover. By getting hints, you're really not fooling anyone but yourself. Ideally, we would encourage that you go into the exam blind, the same as the real thing. Its better to panic about it now when there are no real consequences, than in June.
However, you are all old enough to be responsible for your own actions, and at least in this thread if people are going to post or seek for hints, they are confined to one thread and others can avoid them. The system we have used here over the last number of years may not be perfect, but we have found it to be the best compromise. This thread is NOT to be used for arguing with those who choose to post or look for hints.
All standard boards.ie rules apply here: no flaming, trolling, personal abuse or spamming. Please remember that txtspeak is NOT welcome on Boards. Using large font / multi-coloured text is also both unwelcome and unnecessary.
If you have an issue with a moderation decision, please PM the Mod in question. Do not argue about Mod decisions on thread.
A bit of clarification on what does and doesn't need to be in spoiler tags:
"English was terrible, I ran out of time. My comparative was so rushed." - This is fine. You're not giving away any information about the specific content of the paper. No spoilers needed, post away!
"English was terrible, I had no idea what to say for Kingship in Macbeth." - This is not fine. Spoilers please.
