Ive just after done the essay in Irish paper one about improvements in life in Ireland. Ive just realized I've misinterpreted the whole question and wrote about things that need to be improved in Ireland will I be given a 0?

Abhar (relevance to title) is only 15 marks, Stil (Style) is 5 marks and your quality of Irish is 80 marks so you might lose a few marks on Abhar but as long as your vocab, grammar and content was good you should be grand! I did the same with my essay I wrote about 3rd level students instead of 2nd level students so i will lose a few marks on abhar but my quality was fine and thats the main thing.

you'll be ok, the question was quite unclear and as long as you made references to 'feabhais' and 'In Éirinn' you'll be fine. You could write about past present or future as long as it mentioned the title it's ok

i misinterpreted the essay title too and wrote all about what beeds to be improved in ireland and what i would do to improve it. Just saw my paper last night, and despite your reassurances go a big fat Zero for the essay. did anyone else get the same harsh examiner? luckily the 94% i got in my oral saved me and i got 68% overall. Wonder is it worth appealing???

@Ptimoney111 I know it's frustrating but unless you're actually answering the question being asked the examiner has every right to give you 0. It's the exact same in English, and any other subject for that matter. Unless it's prevented you from getting into college, I wouldn't bother appealing.
