My last holiday here in Ireland just ended and school started again. During those amazing two weeks of pure freedom the weather changed from the usual unpredictable, rainy and windy climate, to a sunny spring weather. Unfortunately, I totally forgot to blog during that time, but don’t worry, I got loads of new stories for you guys.
I finally got the results of my January Exams back. I had an average percentage of 65%, (40% would be a pass) which means if this was my Leaving Certificate I would have had 405 points from a maximum of 600. The Mail I got from Adamstown Community College which contained my results can be found below.
I’m just an exchange student and won’t have to do my Leaving Certificate here in Ireland, but if I did it here and got 405 points I would have had access to those college courses:
I know that 65% isn’t a top result, in Switzerland this would barely be a pass, but here in Ireland it opens hundreds of doors.
I had a quick look at the nearly endless list and I saw colleges that taught law, Forensic & Environmental Chemistry, Marketing etc. for less than 400 Points…
