I was visiting a friend recently and she was in a fluster getting the children organised for going back to school. Her youngest is still in primary school while my youngest is in college, so we are on different planets when it comes to schooling. Her eldest will sit the Leaving Cert next June and already the pressure is ratcheting up.

Isn’t it amazing when you have no children in exam classes how you nearly forget the Leaving Cert even exists? As for CAO points, what are they about!
