I don't want to see it happen.

But I find it odd that when you meet people from the UK only English people call themselves British. Their education is different, nhs, laws etc. they don't feel a connection to Westminster.

For great food every time we like Cassalena's in Turf City. The set menu is 4 course at $65 and the steak on there is perfect. The starters are all fishy (husband adores the mussels) but they will replace with a salad if you ask.

In my experience that's usually exam stress. He's probably not reading the question properly and making silly mistakes. I bet there is relaxation exercises online you can download. That and teaching him to review at the end of the exam.
