Q1 Getting back into state - not sure what stage/subject you are, Luc - but if secondary then discipline issues may be brought up. The exams are the samne in either, so the curriculm is no different, just the lot you have in your class. For primary, do read up on anything that has happened recently in the primary curriculum. Q2 Wait till you get through - you may have had second thoughts by then. And if you haven't, then you can go ahead and tell them that you aren't the right person for their school (NOT the other way round, please. ) Best wishes _______________________________________ TheoGriff.
