your not a failure at life dont be talking negatively to yourself because if you do your just going to fail if you keep positive then you will pass.

As @Aish124 said, don't be thinking negatively. The new Irish JC is hard and very challenging so if you got 37%, that is your foundation so think that it is a good start. You can only get better than this. Especially because this would be the first time anyone would be doing this new JC; you shouldn't put yourself down like that. I can totally understand with the whole thing about telling your parents (I have Indian parents :laughing:) but it just has to be done now rather than later. Hopefully, they'd understand. Good Luck

Hi, you think that 37% is a bad grade, I once got grades in the 20% in Irish, but I got a H4 (60-70%) in the Leaving Cert in Higher Level. Don't stress, they will understand and together you can find a way to improve your grade! Good luck with everything, Adam :)

ha dont worry at least you are not me , listen I failed my mock exam in irish this year even tho I am fluent due to half of my paper getting lost before it even reached the examiner , so I automatically failed. The plus side for you is that you got marked on the work that you did and you can always inprove . Dont give up hope , I on the other hand am at a lost cause especially doing the leaving cert this year.

FAIL = First Attempt In Learning. Tell your parents. I'm a parent, I'd rather be told and see what they have to work on to improve themself. It's not a disappointment, it's an opportunity to better yourself. Don't be too negative on yourself as it will lead to downward spiralling negative thoughts. See the good in you and try your best.

i got 7& on my irish :sunglasses:. tbh im rebelling against it. i litteraly couldnt care less about irish. the career i want in the future doesnt require irish to get into courses or university so im fine

You may also want to look at getting your exam re-corrected if you feel you normally do better. Some mock companies are notorious for making mistakes on marking. My Business mock went from 51 to 96%.
