The Exam

Section A

Section A is worth 300 marks. You need to try question 1 and any other 4 of the 10 questions. Question 1 is always on drawing building detail.

Section B

A 4 hour practical where you get to show off your woodworking skills. It is worth 150 marks. Normally this is about a month before the rest of the Leaving Cert exams start.

Section C

A Building Project where the student makes a building detail, a scale model of a building or a craft piece. The student also produces a portfolio to accompany the project that they make. Ideally this project must be completed by Christmas. This accounts for 150 marks.
