Junior Cert Results Are Out

To Suzanne, Tom, Danny, all the mini Dreamstuffites, Sean (reader and blogger) and anyone else who picks up their Junior Cert results this morning, the very best of luck to you.

Of course, you’ve still got the Leaving Cert to come and then you’ll realise that the Junior Cert “isn’t worth the paper its printed on” as our JC maths teacher said the first day of Transition Year. She was the one piling on the most pressure too!

Almost 58,000 students, including Junior Cert students and adults returning to sit state exams will pick up their results this morning from 9am if not before. Of course, the government are delighted, Mary Hanafin is delighted and no doubt there’ll be a few parents and students delighted as well.

Speaking to my cousin about her impending results on Monday afternoon she didn’t seem too bothered.

Sure, like, there’s nothing I can do now, no point in bloody worrying about it. Anyway, its only the Junior Cert. Did I tell you that we’re doing horse riding in Transition Year now? I get to go to the gym as well!

Too interested in the social aspects to worry about her results. She’s right too. The Junior Cert is only the first hurdle if you’re planning on staying in education, sitting your Leaving Cert, sitting college exams – don’t start worrying about the small stuff now because if you thought you were under pressure or your exams were tough – wait another 2-3 years 😉

Again though, my congratulations 🙂
