    the moment i look at questions on the history papers i forget everything i've studied.
    i was like "I KNOW THIS. I'VE STUDIED THIS. BUT I CANT REMEMBER"
    am i the only one? :/

    im just wondering is the examiner who is gonna correct my papers ONLY correcting the papers from my school OR are they correcting papers from other schools as well?


  • Registered Users Posts: 102 ✭✭ tornados2111


    I think its from other schools too, they will get a pack with loads of exam papers but never get told which school they're from, all of them are mixed up

    ours were takin by our teacher and locked in because the correcter comes to the school like they do for woodwork. they dont even get checked half the time and we just get the marks by default. :)

    what should i know for the question on design in woodwork? :)

    For the question on design, be able to describe the different stages (design ideas/solutions, evaluation, working drawings, etc.)
    Be able to suggest a suitable wood to use - so learn advantages of a few woods.
    And know how to list some design requirements of whatever it is you have to design.
    And of course, be able to design, sketch and label whatever they throw at you :)

    The marking scheme says full marks for well-drawn, well-balanced sketch including notes - best try to be original too, like not just a shelf..

    For the set works section, O Fortuna from Carmina Burana is most likely to come up.

    And for Irish music, our teacher said that collectors, composers or the CCE could come up.
