Junior Certificate Subjects

The following subjects are offered in the Junior Cycle in schools and colleges throught Ireland. Subjects are normally studied at either Ordinary or Higher Level, although three subjects, Irish, English and mathematics, can also be studied at Foundation Level.

Junior cycle lies within the compulsory period of education and is usually taken by students between the ages of 12 and 15. The aims and intended outcomes of Junior Cycle emphasise the importance of students experiencing a broad, balanced and coherent programme of study across a wide range of curriculum areas in order to prepare them for transition to Senior Cycle education. This is achieved by ensuring that students encounter an educational programme that covers a number of areas of experience.

Students from educationally disadvantaged backgrounds and those viewed as at risk of leaving school early may follow the Junior Certificate School Programme.
