Many students right now are preparing for their Irish Oral exam which will take place in schools between March 26th and April 15th 2021.


Year after year, students will agree that the Irish Oral Exam or The Béaltriail is one of the most nerve-wracking parts of the entire Leaving Cert.

To help us break down the Béaltriail and give their tips as someone on the other side of that table, we invited Clíona Ní Dhálaigh, a Higher Irish teacher and state examiner, onto the Studyclix Podcast.

As someone with lots of experience preparing students for the Béaltriail and examining it herself, she gives her tips on things like how to prepare, what things examiners like to hear, and how to avoid those awful nerves.

You can listen to the podcast in full here:

If you'd like to learn more from Clíona, you can subscribe to her own podcast: Daly Dose of Gaeilge, available wherever you get your podcasts. You can follow her on Instagram at @dalydoseofgaeilge

You can also listen to the Studyclix Podcast wherever you get your podcasts!

If there's any topic you'd like us to discuss on the podcast or any guests you'd like us to get on, please let us know. You can follow Studyclix on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat and share your ideas with us there. Otherwise, drop us a line at info@studyclix.ie

How to get a Distinction in Leaving Cert Politics and Society
In many ways, the Politics and Society course pretty accurately mirrors current affairs. It can be just as disorienting, complex, and occasionally, as downright distressing as the things we watch unfold on television, but it’s also totally fascinating and much more engaging and informative than watching the nine o’clock news! I loved Politics for its ability to brin...
