Junior Cert Diary: I'm really happy with maths but CSPE wasn't the best

I was a bit worried about Maths because Paper One was good, but it wasn't as good as I expected. But Paper Two went well, I was really happy.

Statistics, area and volume, and co-ordinate geometry, and area and volume were the main parts of the paper.

For Civic, Social and Political Eductation (CSPE,) I looked over the Ministers in the Dáil (right), and all the important places they meet. I went in feeling okay, but it wasn't the best CSPE exam. I'm not too worried though because 60pc has already been submitted as a project.

One of the four questions - about voting - was really political. The others were on energy conservation, human rights and sending troops to conflict areas. There were one or two things that threw me but I'm not too worried.

I did about five hours studying a day over the weekend. I also slept a lot because I was exhausted after last week.

I have two Business papers today and there are three guaranteed topics on each paper so I'm going to revise them thoroughly.
