    Ye so, friend just send me a text that he got from a friend or something...
    Now I am in no way regarding this as absolute truth but apparently, said person was handed paper2 by accident and whats coming up was passed on, getting to me...

    Again I'll say it, bull**** detector is ringing like crazy at the mo. But just wondering, is it even plausible that someone could be handed the wrong paper? In my school today I'm not even sure if the examiner had paper2 in the class, why would they anyway... ?

    The supposed questions were all pretty much what has been predicted which at least made me feel good for a few mins before I actually copped that its 99% likely to be bollox..
    and out of interest what were the questions???!!!

    The papers are picked up from the post office, the whole school would've got paper two if there was a mess up. The supervisors only get the exam papers released to them at 8.30 and 1.30 in the afternoons so its pretty implausable that someone got paper two by accident. Sorry to burst your bubble

    So he said that what every teacher in the country says will be on it IS on it, and then when you get it tomorrow and see the choices he'll be like 'See, I told you' when we (almost) know what's coming up anyway.

    Looks like your bull**** detector works.:D

    When our superintendent opened the paper 1 bag thing today she said "oh I better make sure they're not paper 2's"

    It's on their list of things to do before the exam, incase they were packaged incorrectly.

    It's plausable at least, but I wouldn't get too excited


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,454 mink_man


    /sniff sniff sniff
    I think I get a smell of BULL****!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,150 LivingDeadGirl


    So I'll be okay with Keats/Cultural Context/Supernatural? :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,160 ✭✭✭✭ phasers


    In my school the exam papers are kept in the caretaker's room
    :p

    I know because I put them there myself last year. They all came together. I stil think the OP is bull though, they're quite well guarded and double checked.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,345 SarcasticFairy


    I just got the same text, or at least something very similar - MB question is deception, Cultural Context, Keats, Longley, Walcott.

    I'm nowhere near Leixlip so unless paper two's are being leaked all over the shop, it's complete arse :)

    Yeah i got the same text...as much as I wish it was true, it's not.
    Anyway they have different versions of the paper in case of leaks like that.
    Not that I won't be revising everything that the text said would come up, just in case!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,969 antomorro-sei


    I got the same text :pac:


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 23,383 amacachi


    Those texts better not be true, Bishop is the only poet I know anything at all about.


  • Registered Users Posts: 484 ✭✭ happydayz182


    This same story comes out every year. Sick of hearing it at this stage.

    jeez how many leavings have you done!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 267 ✭✭ Koushki


    ha, i got that text too ''my mates mates other mate'' type thing.
    in fairness it's all the predictions.
    i hope to god bishop comes up. and wallcot. love that man


  • Registered Users Posts: 50 ✭✭ Blue_Rose


    That is so unlikely! The superviser checks to see if its the right paper, then 2 students have to sign the package to confirm that it is d correct paper and the package is unopened! Pretty sure one of those 3 people would have noticed!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 168 ✭✭ lorna100


    the text I got was from a mate whos friends whith someone in some school in droheda, it was her class that got handed the wrong papers, and that deception, walcott and bishop are on it. It was warning me that they have different papers set in case things like that happen, and to be careful in case they use the different paper.

    Dont know whether to believe it or not but it could easily happen, our supervisor just opened the envelope and put them face down on the desk, I dont think he checked them...


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,220 Davaeo09


    Forget a leak, it never happens and if it did they would simply issue the back up papers immediately!

    BUT

    I do think Keats is coming up, so get revising the odes etc!
    I also think Cultural context is coming up.
    AND
    For Macbeth, I would be revising deception, Character : Lady Macbeth , ALSO I am nearly sure there might be a question on Macbeth a free agent or a victim of influences type thing, as it ties in with todays paper one themes!:D


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7 ✭✭✭ BoggledOut


    Bishop, Walcott, Longley, Keats.
    Cultural context, general vision and viewpoint.
    Deception.

    All i gotta say...trust if you want!!:)

    1st post does look kinda suspicious on my part i agree!!

    I wonder how different the different paper would be, if any of this is true, because I'm learning very little so if any of the papers are different to the main predictions, I'm totally screwed... :(

    Its deffo Bulls**t!! Not a hope did it happen. It just couldnt.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 19 ✭✭✭ happyhappyhappy


    Don't believe it...
    Even if it did happen like everyone's saying..backup papers for a reason!!
    Just go about your revision as if you never heard about that text!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,627 ✭✭✭ timmywex


    Got the same text in wexford!!

    Dont believe it tbh, the things that have been widely tipped for months all coming up?!

    Poets are a fairly handy guess, theme/issue came up last 2 years so cultural context is fairly cert aswell!


    I'll wait and see! Hopefull they dont decide to change it now! Put on the other 4 poets!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7 ✭✭✭ BoggledOut


    It did happen...
    one of my close friends was in the centre...
    said the guy was sh**ing it when it happened!!
    Also, one of the head guys was supposidly up and everything!

    But if it has been reported the likelyhood of those exam papers being handed out again tomorrow seems slim to none!!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 335 ✭✭ likely_lass


    im repeating people said the exact same thing last year and i remember people saying the same thing had happened the year before, its sad people spreading rumors your better off not listening to them at all

    I don't believe it!
    A friend of mine was told the same last year


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 168 ✭✭ lorna100


    My friend seems dead convinced it happened, and it's quite very possible that her friend goes to school in Drogheda. Hmmm.

    Was also warned about them having different papers...
    I wonder how different the different paper would be, if any of this is true, because I'm learning very little so if any of the papers are different to the main predictions, I'm totally screwed... :(

    Thats why Im getting worried. Im learning so little off that if the likely questions dont come up, im screwed. And if we are getting the backup paper, its unlikely to have any of the predicted things on it.

    Im going to see if theres any mention of it on the news..


  • Registered Users Posts: 929 TheCardHolder


    Hahahaha.

    Five minutes after reading this thread i got the very same text. I'm in Meath for the record.

    If it were true why would they tell anyone besides bragging rights?I know I'd keep it to myself so as to gain an advantage, we are after all in a competition with each other. Or maybe I'm just too mean :D


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,220 Davaeo09


    Look as I said earlier forget a leak IT DID NOT, AND COULD NOT HAPPEN!

    BUT
    If your looking for tips on what to study, take out a poetry book study Keats, and then do up a list of different and alike aspects for cultural context!

    I'd say half the country is reading it off this, then texting eachother. its absolute sh1te. And if it is true (just say it was) we would get back up papers which i heard are a d1ck!!
