Sorry mC, that had to be frustrating.

Sorry, in my excitement over squirrels I missed seeing your post mC :( I also hope that it wasn't as bad as you thought!

Would it be possible to change the title of this thread to read "your currency?" instead.
It always looks like someone is trying to give me financial advice when i read that.

Dd you talk about the board then, mC? I always tell my students to talk about SOMETHING in their oral language exams - the weather if they can't think of anything else...

No, I tried talking about economics and international relations and inflation, but it wasn't that organised and it didn't sound that convincing :?

Well, I don't know what your teachers find important, but in my school the most important thing is to keep talking. So, if you didn't need too much help from the teacher your result might be better than you expect now. They know how an exam situation can make you forget the simplest things.
That's why we usually have a basket of chocolates from which the students can pick one after the exam - having choccits to look forward to seems to make them relax. :mrgreen:
And even if the result isn't good: I'm sure most of the boardies here have a story about one or two exams they completely messed up! I had a complete blackout in my final exam in history and still ended up teaching the subject... :roll:

HA!

I was an A-grade student right through school. Top honours. Never had an exam nerve in my life. Then in the last business exam I couldnt remember which side was debit and which was credit and I froze for the whole exam. :o Freaked out. Never having fluffed an exam in my life I then did a simple test on something to do with Postal weights, measurements and charges as part of the maths exam. Totally failed it (though it was the simplest part of the whole advanced math test).

My high marks gained previously in the subjects still gave me a good (not brilliant) score.

First job ever? Running a HUGE mailroom for an international company and sidelining in the accounts department when I had spare time. :lol: :lol: :lol:

mC is so brilliant... her mediocre is other peoples brilliant!

You will be fine mC. you have wonderfully fluent English.

Just a question about the American currency Tony brought up.... They have nickel and dime on the coins? They have NO numerically written amounts on it? :? Surely not. Or am I confused.

OK - I checked and I was wrong about the 5c coin. It has the words "FIVE CENTS"

But the Dime doesn't have Ten Cents written on it. :?
