After a two-month delay, 76000 students who sat their Junior Cycle exams last June will receive their results today.
Over the last few years, the Junior Certificate Examinations have morphed into the Junior Cycle Exams as the State Examinations Committee (SEC) reforms and thinkers with the way things are done. At this stage all the final written exams, apart for English, Irish and Mathematics, are examined at a common level. The familiar grades of A, B, C, etc. has being replaced with those shown in the table below.
There is a different grading system for the project work done earlier in the Classroom Based Assessments (CBAs).
The Junior Cycle CBA grades are as follows:
- Above expectations
- In line with expectations
- Yet to meet expectations
- Not reported
