    It was a particular relief for an exhausted Olive Lockett, who had exams on each of the last three days of the three-week exam period.

    Yesterday’s visual arts exam was 50 per cent of the students’ overall mark. The other 50 per cent came from their major artwork, which was marked two weeks ago.

    Visual arts teacher Kim Lawson said while she is pleased the exams are behind her students, she is about to start HSC preparations all over again with her Year 11 class.

    Student Claudia McLaren felt they had been well-prepared by their teacher.

    “It was one of my easiest exams, but I’m glad we are finished,” she said.

    Claudia, who did three paintings for herpractical work, said she will now move to Queensland for a gap year.

    Brooke Weekes, who created a multi-media work for her practical component, felt she went in to the exam a little unprepared, though she was happier with her practical part.

    “I felt maybe I should have studied more, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought,” she said.

    Brooke wants to go into policing and intends to study through TAFE or CSU if she is accepted.

    Olive, who did miniature illustrations of the historic buildings of Bathurst for her major work, is hoping to gain early entry to study advertising at CSU.

    “I’m very, very glad the exams are over,” she said.
