Maturity exams going on
It's time for examinations in Italy. In these days, "maturity exams" are going on: these are the the final examinations in high school, "graduation" exams. In this heat, schools without air conditioning, 18 year old kids have to go through a written essay (6 hours to write it), then a written exam specific for the type of school they attended (for example, Classical Liceum have either a Latin or Greek translation or Scientific Liceum have mathematical problems), a third written test (multiple choice) and finally an oral exam.
Good luck to all students! (My maturity exams have been ... 18 years ago!)
