Maths

30-November-22

Mathematics at Senior Cycle builds on the learning at Junior Cycle and develops mathematical knowledge, skills and understanding needed for continuing education, life and work. Through their study of mathematics, students develop a flexible, disciplined way of thinking which enables them to solve problems in mathematical and real world contexts.

The syllabus is provided at three levels – Higher, Ordinary and Foundation level and is also assessed at these levels. There are two examination papers at each level.

The Exam (Higher and Ordinary level)

Paper One is 2.5 hours long and has two sections
Section A - Concepts & Skills, 150 marks in 6 questions
Section B - Contexts & Applications, 150 marks in 3 questions
You must answer all nine questions

Paper Two is 2.5 hours long and has two sections
Section A - Concepts & Skills, 150 marks in 6 questions
Section B - Contexts & Applications, 150 marks in 2 questions
You must answer all eight questions but you are given a choice between 6(a) and 6(b) in section A


Unlike other exams, there is no consistency in what question any particular topic will appear. Often questions will test you on a few different topics from across the course. There is also no consistency in the allocation of marks across the different parts (a,b,c) of a question.

Leaving Certificate Mathematics (Foundation Level)

The exam (Foundation Level Only) is 2.5 hours long and has two sections
Section A - 200 marks in 9 questions
Section B - 100 marks in 3 questions
