    Is next year the last year for Junior Cert??? hamzamughees

    Hey Guys.

    The Government plans to finish the Junior Cert from the year after the next. I wanted to ask Is this true, and would this happen. If so then WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS PLAN?

      2016 is the last year that the fully original junior cert will be examined. In 2017, the new junior cert program will begin with changes in English. All the other subjects will remain the same. It will be phased in with about 1 or 2 subjects per year. In my opinion I'm VERY glad that I'm doing the old JC, because the new JC English is really hard and you have to write speeches and essays that count towards your grade.
