Junior Cycle Subjects in Davis College

Davis College offers a very wide range of subject options to students in both junior and senior cycle. Students do four core subjects and they choose four optional subjects. These eight subjects are taken for exams in the Junior Certificate. In addition, students complete four short courses. These are taken over the three years and are assessed by completing a Class Based Assessment (CBA) in second year. A CBA is a project or assignment completed in class. The results of these will appear on the Junior Cycle Profile of Achievement that students receive after the Junior Certificate.
