I got 55 percent in my mocks and I want to get an A in the junior cert is it POSSIBLE?????
Yes. An A in Irish is certainly possible but it is much easier to get a B. I got 71% (B) in my mocks in HL Irish. However, you must require these skills
- Know a wide range of vocabulary
- Know a lot of grammar
- Good listening skills (Cluastuiscint - 17% of the whole exam)
So if you fail cluastuiscint (listening comprehension), you already can only reach a maximum % of 83% (B). This is why you must have vital skills like these. Anytime you find grammar a bit hard, I am sure I will be able to help you on it (really depends...).
Will I give you a small list of random vocabulary every day? Hahaha I still got better than you with 16/40 - ironic!
Tip: Make sure you know what the question in the listening means. If you do not know its English translation, it's nearly impossible to answer.
In case you were going to say that now I am useless for the listening help. Well... I am not good at listening which is my downfall also to the listening comprehension in French. However, it's not about listening skills in helping students but making sure that they know a wide range of vocabulary on a good quantity of topics that could come up.
