It's the same course for next year's 6th years, they're the last year of the current syllabus, so it was actually quite logical to think that either An Gnáthrud or Géibheann would come this year with the other coming up next year. It'll be interesting to see what will come up on the Paper next year, it would definitely be too obvious to put them both on next year, but if they have to test every area of the syllabus they're going to have to put them both on next year!
I found the Léamhthuiscintí quite easy but I spent a bit too much time on them, which I don't regret as they're worth 16%. Happy with An tEarrach Thiar, wasn't as prepared for Oisín I dTír na nÓg, I thought An Gnáthrud or Hurlamaboc would come up so had focused on them. Thought the Gafa question was easy enough to answer on. Overall, happy enough with how Paper 2 went and absolutely loved Paper 1 yesterday.
Hahaha love how you know about next year.either way, it wasnt corrrect to think geibheann and gnathrud haaaad to come up because they havent already, same concept for every subject really,irish is no different
My sister is doing her Leaving next year and I've been helping her out with study/notes etc. I'm not saying they had to come up but like with any other subject you leave what came up last year til the end of your study and focus most of your time on the topics that haven't come up yet or that were on a few years ago. And the same as every subject, you make an educated guess based on what's come up in recent years and what hasn't yet come up, sometimes you get it right, sometimes you get it wrong. I'm not sure if they have to test everything on the syllabus, I assume they do, so it would have made sense to put one on this year's paper and the other on next year's paper. Plus An Gnáthrud was topical with the year that was in it (1916 commemorations) and the Irish paper is set with recent events in mind so it very well could have come up! Either way it's done now and it will be very interesting to see what is put on next year's paper 2!
