    Doing my exams interfered with my enjoyment of the World Cup in Mexico. Just like then make sure you do well in German or French. You'll be working there soon enough...........

    At least Mexico 70 was the best world Cup of all time for you.

    Kids aged 15-18 should only be worried about burds, getting drink and football. The rest will look after itself

    Good luck to yis

    Best of luck lads, just remember, whether you get 9 A1's, or fail the lot, there are no jobs to be had. The exams really are that meaningless

    Go neirí libh. This is far from the biggest deal in the world, though it feels like it now. Stay calm and don't be thrown off by others, the sight of people panicing on the morning of exams did me no favours health-wise at the time! You're not in competition with them, do the best you can and keep your head up. Stay off the drink for a week or so

    My mate got about 300 in his leaving. Got into a PLC and dropped out after a few months.
    He now works full time for 123.ie and is on about 20 odd grand a year starting off.
    It's not that important. Good luck anyway.

    It's never too late to do some revision if you haven't, I saved myself in a subject or two. The best advice you'll get is turn off the telly/phone/facebook and remember every hour counts. Don't stay up all night but. Sleep and a good breakfast!

    Jaysus I remember my German spoken word exam, might as well have been Chinese. I've been to Hamburg and Berlin a few times and they all speak great English though, so it's all good.
