    Did you have Examcraft or DEB for the mocks?

    DEB, was very hard

    HL Maths Paper 1 was unreal. A simple mean and median was put on. I was absolutely shocked. I’d say the marking scheme will be quite harsh though.

    I found the English papers had a lot to do with having to think and deciding on what to write rather than being told what to write. Even just making the decision on what to write about was hard, especially under time constraints. I would have preferred a traditional Macbeth question rather than the open-ended one we were given.

    I didn’t find Maths paper 2 (OL) that bad but I forgot a lot of the stuff that did come up like margin of error and the circle so it was more difficult for me than it should have been.

    Ordinary Level Maths Paper 2 was awful today. I loved Question 1 with the probability, Question 3 with probability aswell and Question 7 with the mean modian etc stuff.

    I was shocked when I saw Question 6, The construction question. Every year it has ALWAYS been a triangle but the parallelogram question this year I’d say threw people. It definitely put me off a bit.

    Overall though, those were the only three questions I was happy with. Should have dropped to foundation- definitely failed ol maths- gosh I feel so stupid

    Irish was grand overall, listening was hard but everything else was perf :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,304 ✭✭✭ SleetAndSnow


    Irish wasn't too bad, listening was hard but the essays on paper 1 were alright even if I had to improvise a lot which isn't great. Paper 2 was alright too but the comprehensions took very long I found in comparison to other times so I had to rush all my pros answers! Oh well.

    Bio was a mix really, some parts were grand others were very hard. Not sure how I feel, usually one of my best ones too :(

    At least tomorrow is a day off though!

    Oh we found that as well because I nearly spent two hours on the comps and rushed the rest which wasn’t ideal

    Hey, has anyone applied for HEAR or DARE here and gotten any correspondence? I've applied for both and have gotten nothing but I read someone on reddit saying their friend had gotten an offer for HEAR. The website says they'll get back to us by the end of July, but sure has anyone received anything yet?

    Haha what a coincidence, I just sent them (CAO) a query about HEAR yesterday and was wondering the same thing too. Maybe it is when you finish your exams (I still have chemistry left to do). Please update us if you get more info.

    I have not received anything for my HEAR or DARE applications yet though I mean to defer them as I’ll be doing a PLC next year.

    I got the email back from the CAO. They said that I will be notified through email on the 25th of June (about HEAR) and through the My Application facility on their website.:)

    Just remember this period of painful waiting, half longing for it to be time, half hoping the time never comes ... that's what your patients will feel like in the waiting room when you're qualified! :D

    Good luck to everyone getting their HPAT results tommorow! :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 31 ✭✭✭ thereisacar


    So relieved with my hpat result, I actually can't believe it. Was convinced I got less than the 20th percentile lol. Still waiting on DARE & HEAR tho.

    Med applicant here. I'm on 724 points and Galway was 725 points last year. Is there any chance I could get in on second round offers? :confused:

    Best of luck to you if medicine is what you really want. Final cao breakdown for 2019 applications for med is down - 1 so everything crossed for you. My course is down - 1 also so hopefully...
