Any tips for doing well in Junior Cycle History ?
Make sure not to leave out parts of the course as the short questions usually cover almost all topics. Students often wonder how much they should write in their answers. It's a good idea to be guided by the mark allocations written on the exam paper. A good rule of thumb is to divide the number of marks by two and this represents the number of points you should make in your answer i.e. a 10 mark question should have 5 points in it.
