GCSEs Reports from the exam hall

(Calvin Coolidge if you were wondering)

You know you’re a die-hard blogger when people at school say “How was the exam? Oh, I’ll read it on your blog…!”

Well, today was the first ‘exam’ exam, but not quite enough of an ‘exam’ to make me not say the same thing tomorrow. Spanish Listening, which I’m describing as easy\hard because it seemed to be quite an easy exam, even if I don’t think I did that well on it. Not a disaster either though – and thankfully the recordings on the tape spoke nice and s-l-o-w-l-y most of the time. I wonder where foreigners picked up that habit from?

Tomorrow is the RE and World of Work sections of Humanities. World of Work will be fun, because it’s an interesting topic in itself. RE will be a dull attempt to regurgitate half-baked lies in two flavours (Christianity & Islam) and half the struggle may be to remember which one I’m writing about.

I mean, take this quote from my Christianity text book, talking about the validity of the Bible: “It is possible that things were added and exaggerated, but not as much as people might think.”

Anything I do gets exaggerated within a few minutes, so how Jesus went 2000 years in a picture-postcard state of preservation would be a remarkable feat if it were the least bit true.

Aghh… religion.

Oh, and as I said on Rob’s blog today – “One good thing to come out of the BBC strike was that Breakfast got replaced with News 24! Yay – and not a sofa in sight.”

Welcome to Part 1 of my uninteresting outpouring of thoughts after a GCSE exam. Today was Spanish Speaking, one of the hardest for me, and all in all I thought it went pretty well. No major fuck ups, and I was very lucky with the topics that came up for conversation! After a presentation on ‘The Environment’ I got ‘Home Life’ and ‘Education & Work’ – and I was very relieved not to get anything on ‘Tourism’.

Our teacher is great though – which calmed the nerves. Next up: Spanish listening. Monday.
