• #### What topics are covered in what paper? Blaithin15

Honestly i havent a clue what topics are covered in which paper

I had the same problem. Ask your teacher to see if they can help or even look through some exam papers on studyclix.

2. #### Caoin

Paper 1:Sets,Algerbra,Number Systems, Patterns, Functions,DistanceSpeedTime,VAT

Paper2: Area/volume,Line,Stats,probability,Sets,Trigonomitary,Consttuctions,Theroms

Thanks so much!

This is an excellent question, and not as simple you might think. Here's the guidance we give on this:

In summary, it is true to say that Strands 1 and 2 (Stats, Prob, and all parts of Geometry) are the main element of Paper 2, with Strands 3 to 5 (Number, Algebra and Functions) the main element of Paper 1. However, there can be overlap of strands across both papers.

In particular, you could get questions about length, area and volume in either paper. "Number" is fundamental to maths, and so could be in either paper, and algebra occurs across more than one strand.

Having said all of that, it seems likely that there would be more overlap across papers at Leaving Cert level than at Junior Cert level.

Our advice would still be to avoid making too many assumptions when it comes to last minute revision.
