    haven't done anything tonight except hpat.. did a trial exam and was happy with section one, think two was down from my usual scores because I'm tired.. wasn't great but here's what i got:

    sec 1 91st percentile
    sec 2 77th percentile
    sec 3 60th percentile

    going to go do more section three 'til around ten then call it a night.

    Hpat Hpat Hpat all day! did my final practice exam

    sec 1 86th p.
    sec 2 85th p.
    sec 3 59th p.

    feel sick thinking about the mountain of things I've neglected due to this.. full steam ahead come Sunday anyway.
    I wouldn't be devastated if I didn't get medicine, but it's something I really want which is why I've put in the hours.. If I do myself justice on Saturday, I'll be happy whatever the outcome. (Well I mightn't feel the same he end of June, but you get the idea!)

    Going into school tomorrow, gonna try keep a clear head and not let people annoy me about this yoke. Sure it'll be grand.

    Finally the Hpat is over and done with! Time to focus on the main event :)
    Just did the crazy amount of homework we were lummoxed with for the weekend, revised French grammar and did my English grinds homework... All I had time to do! Few more hours in the day might come on handy

    So.. Got most of the mocks back! Fairly easy to see that I was fairly Hpat- centered in the weeks coming up to it :/

    English A2 87
    Irish A1 90
    French A1 97
    Biology A2 87
    Chemistry C3 58

    (Counting the bonus we get for doing exams in Irish)

    Still waiting on economics, the other subject that I'm counting, but that won't be great to say the least! Maths I'm not worried about, not counting it so it can jog on. Horsing into the chemistry and economics these days, going to do papers for both teachers before Easter and see how realistic my expectations for the leaving are!
    Hoping to bring up everything bar the French anyway.

    So got the last of my mocks back:

    Irish A1
    French A1
    English A2
    Biology A2
    Economics B3
    Chemistry C3

    515 in total. Not happy clearly, but couldn't have expected much better on the economics and chemistry front- they were on the week before the Hpat so I literally didn't look at them at all!
    Would've got got OT in trinity or psychology in UCD.. I'd be happy with the courses but definitely not with the results!

    Maths- mock overview
    biology- enzymes and related experiments
    French- opinion piece
    English- grinds homework and one poem
