    I'm good at Geography, although I thought the essay questiosn were both harder than in recent years whiel also bucking the BOS's trends. That being said, I've done good, just not sure how good.

    For the essays I wrote 22 pages.
    Essay 1: 8 pages
    Essay 2: 7 pages
    Essay 3: 7 pages

    I think I'll get around the mid 80s in the exam. I know I got 14/15 on the Multiple Choice.
