Ronan will cover the entire course in detail throughout the year. As the Oral Exam is worth 40% of the marks available significant time is dedicated to preparing for this section. Throughout the year students have the option of attending three mock oral exams. After the exam each student is given a feedback sheet, which breaks down their overall grade and gives expert advice on how that grade can be improved.
Students will also get notes on the composition, focusing on the most likely essay titles for June 2019. A lot of time is dedicated to topics that overlap in both the Oral exam and in the Composition such as social problems in Ireland, Politics, The Irish Education System & The Irish Language.
Each student will be given a Paper 2 book covering
- Reading comprehension
- Extra Literature (An Triail)
Note: For students who aren’t doing An Triail there will be an extra class in term 2 which will cover Gafa & A thig ná tit orm.
