24 percent increase in students applying to sit Higher Maths
Wednesday, May 30, 2012
According to the State Examinations Commission, almost 12,900 students intend sitting the Higher Level paper when the Leaving Cert begins next week.
The rise coincides with the introduction of bonus points for the subject at higher level. From this year students who get a D3 or more at Higher Level get 25 additional points.
The bonus points are aimed at incentivising students in the middle-ability range, however it is not known how many students will actually sit the Higher Level paper on the day. Every year around one in five applicants drops back to Ordinary Level at the last minute.
When you start a new job, take the skills, knowledge, and experience with you. Leave the old position, people, and company behind.
What are your Career Interests?
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.
Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.
