Junior Cycle English

English is an international language spoke or being learned by people in almost every part of the world. In Junior Certificate English you will learn how to communicate more effectively with others and to express your point of view in many different ways. You will also have many opportunities to use your imagination and to find out about great writers. By the end of the Junior Certificate course, you should be better able to understand your world and to say what you think about it.

What is the English Junior Certificate exam like?

English is the first Junior Cycle subject to have Classroom Based Assessments. Because of this the Junior Certificate exam has changed over the past number of years, - one of the main changes is there is now just one paper (instead of 2) and is marked differently - Distinction, Higher Merit, Merit and Achieved are the grades awarded at JC.

In the exam you may be asked:

  • write about your experience and your opinions
  • write a letter or a report or a speech
  • respond to a poem
  • write about a novel and a play that you have studied
  • talk about TV programmes or newspaper articles or advertisements

You may also be shown some short reading passages and you will answer questions on them.

You can take the exam at Foundation, Ordinary or Higher level. When it comes to decide, your teacher will help you choose the level that suits you best.
