The first day of the Leaving Cert is over and all the pre-game nerves are surely washed away at this stage. The main attraction of Day One was English Paper I which, although strange at times, seemed to go down well with a lot of students.
There were a couple of slightly mad aspects though, such as the essay option of selling your recent invention of the wheel to your Stone Age peers, not to mention Japanese robot teacher 'Robat' and the fact they threw a doosey of a philosophical question into the comprehension. Namely 'Is there a best possible age to be?'
Here's how some students on Twitter got on.
no offence but that was the most beautiful english paper 1 i've literally ever seen

'Imagine it is the Stone Age' not too hard in an Ireland where Women still don't have body autonomy😊😊😊😊😊

When you think you're clever including the phrase "fake news" and then realise everyone did the exact same
