Poll: Do you still have the 'Leaving Cert nightmare'?

The exams start today.

EVERY YEAR THOUSANDS of students sit the dreaded Leaving Cert exams.

A record number of 62,700 students are starting the exams today, kicking off with English Paper one.

The exams will run until 25 June, but the stress of the Leaving Cert often sticks with students long after they’ve finished their final paper – with many experiencing nightmares about sitting the exams years on.

Whether you sat your Leaving Cert many years ago or recently (or whatever equivalent exam you took), we want to know if you’re still haunted by the exam stress.

So today we’re asking: Do you still have the ‘Leaving Cert nightmare’?

Poll Results:

No (3784)
Yes, but not that often (3718)
Yes, regularly (959)
I didn't sit the Leaving Cert (692)
