How to Choose Leaving Cert Subjects

Remember the 3 questions

  1. What subjects do you enjoy? Research the subjects carefully to understand what they involve. Use the links below. There is often quite a difference in their content and level from JC
  2. What subjects do you need? You need both points and certain subjects to matriculate for CAO (points based) courses. Use this link to filter the ‘Entry Requirements’ on the left-hand side of the page (for example – Lanaguages, Higher Maths, Science) .
  3. What subjects can you get points in? What subjects would suit your attitude to learning, your aptitude for learning and your style of learning? Are you willing and able to work hard for content-based subjects? Do you have strong abstract reasoning for Science? Test your Abstract Reasoning. Do you have strong spatial reasoning for DCG? Test your Spatial Reasoning. Is your learning style suited to projects? Would you be suited to the project-work in LCVP? What grades did you get in the Junior Cert that might support your Subject Choice?
