I took hair and beauty for my love of makeup and playing with hair. When I found out it was an option to take for Year 10, I immediately chose it. I find hair and beauty fascinating and I hope to pursue a career within the hair and beauty sector when I am older.
Recently, myself and the other students who have taken Hair and Beauty as an option, have sat our Hair and Beauty exam. The preparation for our exam was surprisingly not stressful at all because we had huge amounts of support from our teacher Miss Rawson. Revising every lesson was very beneficial because it boosted our confidence ready for the exam. We were offered extra support the day before our exam and in the morning of our exam where we could go and seek last minute advice and tips from our teacher. Miss also offered breakfast to keep us energised and ready for the exam, who doesn’t love a free breakfast? The support from Miss Rawson was the highlight of the exam because she was always cheerful and was pushing us to do our best.
The ‘Understanding the hair and beauty sector’ exam itself was quite challenging but there were a few questions that were slightly easier than the rest. The exam involves a broad range of topics from simple hair and beauty treatments, hygiene and personal protective equipment to more difficult topics such as health and safety policies and procedures. Hopefully, I have done really well and I hope to surpass the Pass mark of 40. I know that I have done the best that I could and am hopeful that, that is enough.
Good luck to all the other students who have taken this exam and once again thank you to Miss Rawson for making this option and exam enjoyable, fun and educational!
