JC Science Coursework

Important information regarding Junior Certificate Science 2017


Dear Parents & Guardians,


Please read the information provided below, in particular the section about Coursework B.

The rest of this term will almost entirely be spend working on this part of the Junior

Cert Science course.




There are three parts to the Junior Cert assessment process in Science:


Coursework A = 10%


Coursework B = 25%


Terminal Examination = 65%




Coursework A: Students must complete 30 mandatory activities as specified in the syllabus. Each student has their own laboratory copy with a written report of each activity. These have been kept in the labs under the supervision of the teachers throughout the three years of the Junior Certificate course.This must be available in the school for inspection. Students sign off on those activities they have completed by the end of April 2017



Coursework B: Each student undertakes two prescribed  investigations based on topics in the syllabus.  The investigations will be prepared, carried out and reports written up in class time between now and the Easter holidays.  Report booklets to be signed off by the end of April 2017. Some research and preparation may be done at home but must be the student’s own work. Most materials for the investigations this year should be available in the science laboratories though students may be asked to supply some materials themselves.

It is imperative that all students are present at all their scheduled Science classes during this half term to complete the investigations (preparation, carrying out and reporting), otherwise incomplete coursework will have to be submitted.




Terminal examination: this will consist of a written paper on Mon 12th June  which will cover the three areas of Biology, Chemistry and Physics and which may be taken at Ordinary or Higher level.




Thank you for your ongoing support.
