Ye I guess you could say we are lucky, but we would rather it was more like the way you have it.

Well History isn't all on the final exam, you do somethign before the exam that goes to afair bit of the grade

I don't know about Ireland, but in Britain there is still pressure to do well in work - particularly in your last two years. If you want to stand a chance of getting in any good uni, you have to put 100% into both the schoolwork and the modular exams. The statements teachers provide in regards to your attitude and performance count for alot more now than they used to, hence the need to do well throughout the course of the two years.

It sucks, and even if you do put 100% in, you're still not guaranteed a place at a good uni. I guess that's just school in general though

We use a point system, were your best six results in the LEaving Cert are taken, and you get it out of 600, higher level subjects are worth 100 points max and Ordinary are worth 60 max. And about 360 is minimum in college with some courses requiring up to 580 or something

Higher end subjects - English, maths, sciences etc?

What does Trinity require then - something at the 580/590 end, presumably?

All the educational systems in place in our various societies are overrated.

No it all depends on what you take in college, things like Law and Medicane would be in the high 500's

Yeah, I remember their A Level requirements for Law being entirely unreasonable. They were more demanding than Oxford, I think

Well praise be that I'm not qualified enough to go to Uni this year even though I really should be.

Actually to be honest I now regret my rather wayward adolescence.




Technical Colleges all the way.

Again.
