The Junior Cycle and Leaving Cert 2022 exams will be very different from most other years. Because of the pandemic, this year's 3rd and 6th years haven't had the same opportunities as past exam students to attend school and get a full, in-person education. 

In response to this, the Department of Education has devised a number of adjustments which will be implemented on this years' exam papers. The changes are designed to give students more choice & an equal chance to do well in the exam despite having missed a certain amount of class-time.


You can find out all you need to know by downloading the booklet released by the Department of Education here, or visit https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/7f42a-assessment-arrangements-for-junior-and-leaving-certificate-2022/

The booklet outlines the adjustments made in each subject, so be sure to read through it to find your specific subjects, and if you have any questions we recommend reaching out to your teacher for clarification.

We hope this helps !


For a brief overview of the changes, check out this episode of The Studyclix Podcast:
