This is an area of major decision for students and parents. Great care and time is required to make the right decision.
This booklet deals with what should be considered when selecting Leaving Cert subjects. The issues of minimum requirements and the points system are explained. It also deals with the issue of the ‘easy’ subjects, the ‘Wimbledon’ effect, and overlap in subject content, and teacher driven selection. It also discusses checking previous exam papers, listening carefully to what others might say about their experiences, and the process of making choices.
