All about 'O' level exams. I have several clear memories about this time. Very strict rules in the exam room. The papers waiting, upside down, on the desk. We couldn't touch them until a teacher told us to begin. The exams latest a week or more. One in the morning, and one in the afternoon. On the days when we had no exams, we still had 'lessons'. Sometimes we'd taken the exam, and some of the teachers wanted to go through the questions with us. This seemed pointless, and only added to the sense of apprehension. Only the art teacher spared us this...not quite the same thing as maths or physics of course, he got us drawing as normal. On the days when we had no exams they should have let us stay home. Soon after the exams were over, school holidays began. The long wait for the results, the relief when I did OK. We've all been there.
About the Artist
Self taught. Love drawing. Like to make pictures up, without using reference pics, often in cartoon style. I do other pictures where I do use reference. I'm knocking on a bit, born in 1940 in Greenwich, London. Retired, and loving it.View full profile
