Hello students & parents,
The Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh announced this morning that all oral exams will be cancelled this year. This will mean that students will receive 100% of the marks going for the oral exams. At first glance this might seem like great news for our students as it would appear to result in higher marks overall. However, every French/Irish student in the country will receive the same benefit, so it makes the written and listening sections even more important. These sections are essentially 100% of the exam now. We encourage you to focus your energies on these areas of your study now and your teachers will continue to support you to do this.
