Maths - 79% B
English - 78% B
French - 70% B
Irish - 73% B
Geography - 85% A
History - 74% B
Science - 73% B
CSPE - 89% A
Home Ec - 81% B
Art - 69% C

All HL, 2 A's, 7 B's and 1 C. I was over the moon with French, always my worst subject, I managed to scrape a B! Delighted. My Art result pissed me off because my teacher had been off on maternity leave for the past year, and I'd been getting up in the 90s while she was gone, and now I'm back down to a C now she's back -_- Was also disappointed with English because that's normally my best subject, until I found out I got the highest in my class lol. Idek where I lost marks though.

Relied pretty damn heavily on the Mock spoilers thread, especially for Science and History, regretting it cos I don't know I'll cope for the real thing now

Quite upset with some of the marking from Examcraft. A couple of fits were had.

Irish 79% (B) Incorrect marking on Letter and general dislike of me
Maths Paper 1 98% (A) So happy!
Maths Paper 2 87% (A) Not too shabby
Science 73% (B) Haven't got script back, 10 failed though, so quite happy.

No attempt marks were given in Maths, so nearly everyone's exam had to be recorrected. No acknowledgement of the huge mistake in Exam craft Irish Paper 2 Poetry section.

Speaking of which, is anyone else being hit with new mocks from the other bar codes?

I failed maths :L

But I'm in a better school now and I have a good teacher that knows what she's doing!

All higher:

English - 68
Maths - 27
French - wasn't corrected because I moved
Geography - 73
Science- 57
History - 55 - didn't have course finished in old school
CSPE - 95
Irish - moved schools don't know something in late 60s I was told
Home ec - 76 with mock cookery and 79 without
Art - don't know


Everyone did really well in maths here! Well done! I'm more of a language and history person.
But I feel improvement already! My teacher was talking to the class about study and motivation and she said some people's best is an A, some a B, or a C. You know yourselves what you can get. As long as you do everything you possibly can then you can say to yourself in September you did your best even if it's a C. She said she'd be jumping up and down even if its a C or an A.
I love my maths teacher, she's unreal!

Hopefully everyone is studying by now and don't leave it to Easter break, start NOW. You can do it!!!

Start studying now, I didn't study at all for mocks and thats what I got, I got Irish back... 38!! That was the kick in the arse I needed to start studying.. for all subjects.

I hope to get all A's and B's with the exception of HOPEFULLY a C in Irish.

You say you find English hard.. I got an A without any study but it's all essays's and stuff it comes natural to some.. I find Irish hard so I bought Revise - wise ... You should buy a revision book for the subjects you find hard.

I didn't study much as such.
- I learned my R+J, Roll of thunder and Poems as we went along and thats it.

My first year english book was great and it influenced my answers now.

PQE Point, Qoute, explain.

- state your point,
- back it up with a quote,
- develope the answer.

It's important you write a lot too, for the reading comps on paper 1 I wrote a page for each question.. but dont even try to waffle. Not looks worse than that.
