Assessment

The Junior Certificate syllabus aims to cater for the entire ability range of pupils. Assessment is at two levels, Ordinary level and Higher level. Assessment at both levels is by:

  • Aural examination
  • Terminal written examination

While the syllabus is the same for both levels, the communicative tasks will be carried out through language use of varying degrees of complexity. All pupils will be expected to execute the same tasks, although Ordinary Level examination candidates may do so in a simpler way.
