Leaving Cert Students Are Freaking Out Over English Paper One

The Leaving Cert started today and there’s no doubt that you can feel it in the crisp, warm breeze of the LC weather, knowing thousands are starting their day off with a few boroccas and last minute trying to figure out how you study for English paper 1. Comprehensions, short questions, long question, imagery, unseen poetry, essays, they’re all so wishy washy.

Many are sending their good wishes out to the students who are about to sit the Junior Cert or the Leaving Cert, reminiscing on their past exams and how they never really made any real impact on their future.

The morning started off with the every exam student in the country going in for the first exam of the season; English Paper 1. An exam that wrecks your nerves not knowing how to prepare other than doing other random Paper 1 past exams papers, and trying to guess what the comprehension will be about.

But it seems this year the exam was set out slightly different this year. Students left the exams and went straight to twitter to vent their shock and frustration at the people who write the exams. It seems poetry and comparative questions were put on to the English paper 1 this year and students are FREAKING.
