Higher Level Irish, English & Maths

For Third-Year Students sitting their Junior Cycle Exams in June 2023

Course Dates

Course Description

• The aim of this course is to give students the opportunity to revise and prepare for their Higher Level Junior Cycle written exams in the core subjects of IRISH, ENGLISH AND MATHS.
• Students will consolidate all they have learned during the Junior Cycle in exam-focused classes and tutorials.
• Each 1½ hour class will be taught by our exceptional teachers using exam-focused notes. Each class will be followed by a one-hour Assisted-Learning Tutorial in each subject, during which students will be shown how to study the notes given in class and how to use the information learned to answer sample exam questions.
• During the tutorials, students will work through study strategies and exam techniques under the guidance of the teacher. They will have ample opportunity to ask questions and interact with the teacher while they practice for the exam.
