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.

What are your Career Interests?
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.
Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.
