Junior Cycle Curriculum

In Scoil Mhuire, we offer a number of core subjects for Junior Cycle. These subjects are shown in the table below.

GEOGRAPHYPHYSICAL EDUCATIONRELIGIOUS EDUCATIONCSPESPHE

Core subjects follow a common course in the first year and students are assessed for higher or ordinary level from the start of second year onward.

In addition to the core subjects, all first-year students taste the remaining subjects on the curriculum. The optional subjects offered for these taster courses include:

Having completed the first year taster programme students, at the end of the first year, choose the option subjects they wish to keep on into the second year based on their interest, ability and potential for success in the subject.

Students preparing for their ‘Junior Cycle Student Award (JCSA)’ will be required to take a maximum of 10 subjects for examination. More information can be found on junior cycle.
