Coursework B 2014 Booklet

The study of Science entails practical laboratory work (experiments) along with the study of theory. In the modern world where advances in Science and Technology are bringing great changes to our lives, the study of Science is particularly relevant to help people assess the implication of these developments.

The study of Science at Junior Certificate level involves the study of Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Applied Science.

Junior Certificate Science marks are distributed as follows:  

  • Coursework A - 10%    (Experiments and investigations specified in the syllabus) 
  • Coursework B - 25%    (2 specified investigations)
  • Terminal examination - 65%    (Section 1 - Biology / Section 2 - Chemistry / Section 3 - Physics)

    Science branches into 3 separate subjects for the Leaving Certificate:
  • Biology.
  • Chemistry.
  • Physics.

Coursework B
Student Investigations Each student is required to undertake two specified investigations in their third year and to submit a pro forma report on these for assessment. These additional investigations, based on the topics and learning outcomes in the syllabus, will be set by the examining body and will vary from year to year. These investigations account for 25% of the students final Junior Certificate grade and will require substantial time investment, by the student, during the year. Students will be notified of the investigation titles well in advance of the laboratory time they will be allocated to conduct the investigations, and this laboratory time-slot cannot be altered. DES deadlines for submission by the students of their report must be adhered to, and, in order to prevent missed deadlines, students are expected to exercise due diligence in the preparation, planning and conduct of their chosen investigations. Students who fail to do so will not be given additional time, and reports still incomplete come deadline, will be submitted as is.

Additional coursework B material can be found in the table below to help you with your projects.

The following table contains a summary of all the JC Science chapters complete with appropriate past questions.  It is an excellent revision guide.

There is a shortage of people in Ireland with training in Science and Technology to meet our current needs. It is also important to remember that a Science subject is required at Leaving Cert level for some third level courses, e.g. Medicine, Pharmacy, Engineering, Food Science etc.
