 We know that it can be difficult to understand how the academic system works in Ireland and that is why at 2Learn Group we will review the operation of the Irish educational method year by year. Add that although it may have certain differences, this system has great similarities with Spanish and this can make it easier for the student to integrate and develop. 

Students prepare for the Junior Certificate. They will take 7 to 10 subjects of which history, mathematics, English, geography and CSPE (politics) are compulsory. Depending on the school, students will have the option to choose some subjects and others. The difficulty varies, there are higher or lower level exams. For example, math and English tests have a basic level. Once the 3 years have been completed, the Junior Certificate will be obtained, although there may be exceptions. The result of the notes will be processed in September. 

This year represents a radical change for the student since it is used so that they get to know themselves and can choose their subjects according to their tastes and preferences for the Leaving Certificate (the final exam of the system Irish High School Education and the Irish College Enrollment Exam). Some Subjects can be completed in modules of 8-12 weeks. Students will have two weeks of work experience, thus being able to mature and really find out what they want to do in the future and thus be able to try to get a job in that area. The practices can be done one day a week, but everything will depend on the school. Also add that during this year, the school organizes excursions for the enjoyment of its students. Everyone is expected to attend and the destination is usually an adventure camp where you can practice different sports such as canoeing, archery, horseback riding, climbing … The cost is usually around € 200- € 300 

 The last two years are dedicated to preparing for the state exam called Leaving Certificate. The subjects they must pass are mathematics and English plus 4-5 subjects to choose from at a higher or ordinary level. Remember that not all subjects are offered in all schools. Normally foreign students who want to take the Leaving Certificate must take at least two higher level subjects. They must also pass the compulsory subjects for validation in their country. The results of this exam are in August.
