Making the most of your Mock Exams - After – Part III
March 17, 2018
If a Junior Cert student does plan to change the level at which they take a particular exam subject, it is very important that their school informs the State Examination Commission of such changes.
This is because once students indicate which level paper they wish to receive in the Junior Cert, they must, other than in very rare circumstances, stick by that choice on the day of the exam. In the case of the Leaving Cert, students will be given whichever level paper they request on the day.
They may, however, need to take into consideration parts of the examination taken prior to the written paper when deciding on the level they require. In many subjects, the oral, practical, project or practical coursework component of the examination is common to all levels.
