The only exam results I seem interested in these days come from my doctor.

Re: Exam Results

Cashy, it happens every year.
This year it is more relevant because the exams have changed into something that we experienced...not coursework based results, but results based on what you actually have in your head.
All that said, it has been tough for the youngsters as this is the first time for a long time that this has been done...so those who have not done quite so well feel hard done by.

The young folk that I know have all worked very hard and it has paid off handsomely for them...so to them Well done!

I am not disputing that, i just find it a damn nuisance rammed down every year. so they have worked hard to get good results, did our generation not? its whats expected if yeh want to progress.

Of course our generation worked hard....you know that without asking...but we both know it was far different back then.
While we BOF's might get irritated by the media telling us all about it....it is good for the youngsters to celebrate their successes...and where they didn't do as well as expected ...make plans to regroup.

I would rather read about that than some of the stories being sported by the press right now.

got to be on your side cashy over this results issue. glad the kids or should i say students have worked hard for their results, but didn,t anyone else did since exams started. hardly groundbreaking news and as for newspapers i only buy the sun when they are giving away tokens for cheap holidays.

Re: Exam Results

I can still remember the head teacher at Junior school and the headmaster at Grammar School giving us the sealed envelope to take home for our parents to open. God forbid if they had already been opened. Father used to study my results and look sternly at me then break out in a big smile when he said "Well done son".
