Leaving Certificate Subject Choice Overview
Choosing the right combination of subjects for the Leaving Certificate is very important. It’s important to get it right as it may have consequences for entry to third level. At Cólaiste Chiaráin we run a 3 week course where we give students the tools in order to help them make the best choice of subjects for them.
week 1 Overview of Subject Choice
Here we will look at the various subjects that are available at Cólaiste Chiaráin. All students are expected to study Irish, English and Mathematics and a language. They will then choose 3 other subjects.
week 2 career and college
Week 2 looks at choosing subjects that are useful for various career sectors as well as looking at the minimum entry requirements for college courses.
week 3 information session
During this week the students will meet with the teachers and senior cycle students of the various subjects and get the chance to have their questions aired and answered.
