    Too late to start now? ellencashen

    hi, I'm in 6th year and I was wondering if it would be possible to take on ag science now and achieve a good grade? I'm aware there's a project but I'm willing to put in the work

      im in 3rd year but from what i heard ag science is easy and therefore its possible if you study hard

      ill advised, ag science is relatively easier to understand than the other sciences but there are far more notes involved and i believe you need access to a farm to do project work. If you were desperate you could do it but a good grade would be difficult.

      I did chemistry for the first half of fifth year and then changed to geography and I am still not 100% up to speed with the rest of the class.

      At the end of the day you have to think is really worth taking on a totally new leaving cert subject with only 6-7 month left before the actual exam. Keep in mind that there is also a project to do as well as learning two years of material. People may tell you that it is easy but you will have the added pressure of learning all this material in such as short space of time along side learning all the material from your other subjects. I would not recommend it.

      If you really would like to do it, it would be easier if you already had an interest/ knowledge in farming. However i agree it would be hard to squeeze the course into that space of time.
