there is alot of information, however you can avoid some topics, like microbiology is not a must to learn, just dont do that long question, and the same for consumer studies, just dont do that long question, but do remember that short questions will want some of that info but not in as much detail

I dont think so, if you did home ec for junior cert you should be okay. Im doing it too but im not taking up much time studying it because i find it to be easy from my work in JC

thanks for the replies!!i did it for jc but idk i just find i have to learn it like a lot of the stuff just doesnt stick and also is microbiology as in bacteria and food spoilage not a must do because im acctually starting to do out notes on them because it kind of intertwines with biology so i figured i should do it ? is there anything else you could leave out instead or ?

you need to practice exam techniques like for nutritional values some questions ask N.V

sorry i sent by accident but some ask NV and dietitic value and are worth 20 marks so really u only need to know 3 NV points and 2 dietetic value points but thats just one example of exam techniques try to work smart not hard if they give you 20 examples learn around 5 etc

but all leaving cert subjects are very hard but you may need to reevaluate the way you are studying if its effecting your other subjects
