Exams are upon us!
I always think this time of year is a tough time for those in education. Nature is calling, with its lusciously green hedgerows, and blue skies that seem to go on forever. If you’re a horse rider, all you want to do is get out on your horse, and enjoy the beautiful spring evenings before the flies become too troublesome.
Yet if your household is anything like our household, you have the thought of exams hanging over your head in some form or other. My daughter is completing her second year in Uni, and the exams she is sitting now count towards her degree, so the horses have effectively been given time off while she knuckles down.
And my son – well, he’s not in to horses (I did try when he was young to get him interested but mucking out held no thrills for him, I’m afraid!); instead he loves football, tennis and going to the gym. Spoiling his fun is GCSE’s. Constant revising; as soon as one is finished concentrating on the next – it’s all a great big bore!
Of course, it’s necessary, as education in any shape or form is never wasted. With the competitive market place we currently live in, proving your worth to potential employees is crucial and that valuable piece of paper with your name and your exam results goes a long way to help in this regards.
Yet if you are not great at exams where does that leave you? How can you show people how good you are at a certain skill? How will they take notice of you?
