Metalwork

Metalwork is one of th techonology subjects offered at Junior Cycle. It is an activity based course focuing on metal, how to work with it ad how to assembl different parts. Other materials such as plastics and wood are also investigated and used in project work. You will be working with basic electronic components too.

What is the Metalwork Junior Certificate exam like?

There are two (or three) parts to the exam:

  • Coursework project - there is a project worth 37.5% at Higher Level and 75% at Ordinary Level. You will have approximately 4 months to make it.
  • Written Examination - the written paper is based on metalwork theory and makes up 25% for both levels.
  • Practical Exam (Higher Level only) - this is worth 37.5% of the total marks for Higher Level. This involves making and assembling parts from a given drawing and you will have 3 hours to do this.

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