Best of luck! I did and English Lit A level (they didn't offer language)...you'll find the examiners are kind with the questions than you realise

Never! Examiners all feed off the happiness of children...

Remember exam technique and think of the examiner who has to mark the paper. Write clearly and use double spacing (I'm assuming it is a handwrittten exam). Take lots and lots of spare pens. I know I don't really have to tell you all this, but a reminder never goes amiss.
It is amazing how many people with poor written English skills sit exams , so on that item alone you are already ahead.
Good luck, or as the Germans say - Hals und Beinbruch! (Not sure what the Poles would say, but it would surely be unpronounceable)

My form tutor's got a poem about pens -

Take one to break,
One to lose,
One to lend
And one to use!

Isn't that great? X-D

Sorry I wasn't in time to say "I'm sure you'll be brilliant" so I'll just say:

I'm sure you were brilliant.

you never really finish education though... you are always going to be doing something... be it college, a nightcourse, an update course for whatever you want to do in life... things are always changing so you have to keep learning...

Ohhh... i cant sumarise my lovely man... ... He is a legend in Ireland.. amazing man.. he was a irish revolutionary.. he took part in the 1916 rising.. (trying to free ireland from the chains of the british and gain our independence and national identity back) he spent his life fighting for ireland.

He achieved so much.... he helped fight the British to a stalemate by changing the rules of warfare and setting up an intelligence network to rival the Empire's. He helped negotiate a treaty which gave Ireland the first stepping stone to become a a Republic and oversaw Ireland's turbulent transition to democracy.
but it did cost something....... he preciptated the bloody War of Independence against the british and the treaty deal brought back from London split the country into two fiercely opposing halves and plunged the country into a traumatic civil war. Which led to his death in his own county by opposing forces... Co. Cork... he died far to young.. his nickname was 'the big fella'

A website descibes him beautifuly.....

'There have been many famous Irish patriots before him, and a few since, but none conjures up as much emotion and mystery as the man who, in a span of six short years, brought a country from bondage to a position where she could win her freedom. There are few left alive who remember Michael Collins, but his shape looms large on the Irish horizon.'
