On Friday Leaving Cert students faced Maths Paper one. The Ordinary level paper was described as "sent by the Gods".
Somebody's really up there looking out for us ordinary Maths legends, that paper was sent from the gods #LeavingCert

The reaction to the Higher Level paper wasn't quite so positive.
What the fuck was the HL maths paper 1 , I literally opened the page and felt a gigantic slap across my face ? #LeavingCert

This morning students faced into Maths paper 2, what a start to a Monday morning. Judging by the amount of clown gif reactions to both higher and ordinary level Maths, Leaving Cert students week is off to a bad start:

One of the biggest challenges students found were the short questions.
why were the maths HL short questions harder than the long questions #LeavingCert

This afternoon, students will be taking the Irish paper one. We hope this paper works in students favour.
