Dillon's mock exams start this week. These are a practice for his Junior Cert exams in June, which are his first serious examinations. Although these exams aren't important in the long run, his Leaving Cert exams at 18 years will determine which university he will attend, they are a practice and to be taken seriously, ie, turn up on time with all the equipment. Fortunately Dillon will turn up on time with all the equipment, thanks to his mother. Idle chat late last night and I discovered that he didn't know which exams he had today and when he read his timetable I discovered that he had lost his calculator needed for his maths exam. If I hadn't asked him last night he would have gone into school totally unprepared, luckily Joules had a scientific calculator so he'll be prepared but I'm sure I have a few more grey hairs!
