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.

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

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


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.

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!

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