Junior Certificate

juniorcert1The Junior Certificate examination is taken on completion of a Junior Certificate course of three years’ duration. The Junior Cycle covers a vital period in young people’s lives when they encounter significant changes in their educational experience. The principal objective of the Junior Cycle is for students to complete broad, balanced and coherent courses of study in a variety of curricular areas relevant to their own personal juniorcert2development and to allow them to achieve a level of competence in these courses which will enable them to proceed to senior cycle education.
