Practice Exams...

    Hello

    This is Kinoko  well this week we have practice exams to prepare for NCEA exams at the end of the year. I am not particulary fond of exams and to be honest I am a slacker and very lazy (as you can maybe see from my number of blog posts)
    Well I will try my best... so wish me luck!

    Anyway here are comments from my friends, Stat (as you all know) and Mimi (who may be the first time that has written)


    Stat

    This is Stat and I have just come out of my science exam. Everyone at my school now has school exams, which are practises for NCEA exams at the end of the year. The only thing is, due to the earthquake our marks can count towards our final results for NCEA. That’s good, but also bad, because it puts more pressure on us at the moment. 

     

    Today’s science test had two papers. The chemistry paper was okay and I think I did alright (I hope I did alright), but Mechanics (a type of physics) was just downright horrible. It was a two hour exam (!).  That was better than the English exam this morning. We had close reading, which is where you analyse poems and short stories for language features (style, point of view, mood), and two essays to write. Our essays were about one film we studied and one book or play. My class’ film was Juno, and our play was Romeo and Juliet. I decided to write about something I found interesting in both Juno and Romeo and Juliet. It sounds easy, but it can be quite difficult to remember everything.

    Well, I hope I at least passed my two exams today. Wish me luck!


    Mimi

    I personally think that tests are … now lets be honest here… tedious...

    However apart from that the rooms itself are quite pleasing and entertaining in its own way. For a start, there may be the chance of having hints on the walls of the classroom. At those times use it to your advantage.

    and Stat: NOTE IN REAL EXAMS THEY PROBABLY WILL BE TAKEN DOWN AND THEY MAY NOT BE THE ANSWER YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. ALSO DON'T LOOK AROUND THE ROOM CAUSE THAT IS SUSPICIOUS


    Not that I do or anything... if you were wondering

    I guess you could say that it also depends on the test you are taking too.

     

    Anyhow, I do think that although tests are vital you should not stress too much. Try and have fun... well not really...


    Ok see you next time~
    Mimi, Stat and Kinoko
