      with the jc your grades tend to improve throughout the year, it takes a while to notice but if your consistent and test yourself using the marking scheme you should be fine. good luck

      You have a really good timetable if you use your time effectively. Last year when I did the junior cert, I started homework at 6 and didn't finish until 10 and then began to study, so you really are fortunate to have the time. Do you feel that you are procrastinating or is it that it's just a lot of work to learn in such a short amount of time. If its procrastination, then before your study write about 3 aims down, e.g. practice simultaneous equations, revise Irish grammar and fgo over a couple of people in historys. Give each of these a time slot and work hard on achieving your goals, don't cut into the time of another subject as you always have the next day to revise or you could study until 9:30. If its that you don't have enough time, you honestly do! It might feel that the mocks and the junior cert are coming quickly, but just stop and think that realistically you have 6 months. I recommend that you might go over exam papers and wrote out predictions, definite topics every couple of years and things that haven't come up in a while. Also have a look at what is happening right now since they are writing the papers currently. If you do this, you'll realise that there are a few things on the course that you can cut out, which will save you time from learning pointless things
