Exam Results

I have a bone to pick with exams.
Perhaps ( or probably!) it’s because of personal experience but I can’t say I’m happy with the leaving cert in particular. It’s gotten far to much credit for my liking.
Your whole life, apparently, depends on this one exam. This will dictate who you become in life. The money you make, the house you live in, all of this is dependant on this one set of results.

Well, frankly, that’s not true. Anyone who says it is, is wrong.

Added unnecessary stress, pressure and competition is the very last thing anyone needs while they are trying to make important decisions. Even those who should know better can be guilty of heaping on the stress at the worst time possible.

These are just exam results. Good or bad they are no reflection of who you are as a person, of your intellectual capability, or what you’re going to accomplish in life.

If you want to talk about exams or plans or college or just what’s on your mind, call me on 087 7097477 for an appointment.
