Irish LC paper 1 HL
by nwalsh69 Leaving Cert Irish — 13/06/16 7

For the essay today I wrote a whole debate about young people, misreading the title when it was actually about elderly people. How do they mark the essay ? If my Irish was good but my subject matter wasn't correct am I likely to lose a lot of marks ?

sadly youll lose out on abhar but whats only out of 20! so I wouldn't panic too much if the irish is good. plus if youre good at the written section your oral probably went really well? also the debate format will earn you marks

that's* out of 20. the rest is all Gaeilge and communication https://www.examinations.ie/tmp/1465850223_5670525.pdf and don't forget your listening :) hope this helps

So there's no correlation between Irish standard and your marks for subject matter ? I know the Irish was all right so once I know that I'll be marked as normal for that I'll be ok . Thanks a million

sorry thought that was the link for the marking scheme I sent ! you can just look up last years one! roughly says out of 5 for stil, out of 15 abhar, out of 80 Gaeilge
