Junior cycle fact sheets


The NCCA has put together a set of fact sheets which give information about the different subjects available in junior cycle. While the fact sheets have been designed with sixth class pupils and first year students in mind, they will also be useful for parents.

They can be used by first year tutors and guidance counsellors in post-primary schools and teachers of senior classes in primary schools. They will also be useful for school information evenings and open days.

We are currently updating our facts sheets for new subject specifications in junior cycle. These subjects include English, Science, Business Studies, Modern Foreign Languages and Visual Art.
