noooooooooooooooooo, the ASSESSMENT TASK which is a mini exam based on your CBA is 10 percent, The CBAs are graded seperately in , below, in line, above expectations and of course exceptional. Some schools including mine got our CBA results before a department inspector also checks them, as they are marked by our teachers first.
The final exam is worth 90% of the final grade.
The other 10% is from the Assessment Task which was completed during third year. This a reflection on CBA 2.
The CBA’s are graded using word descriptors (e.g. Exceptional) and do not contribute to the final grade found on the Junior Certificate.
The results from the CBA’s and the final grade all appear on the JCPA (Junior Cycle Profile of Achievement) which is distributed to students a while after they receive their initial results.
