FAQ's

The course is for Junior cert students doing their exams in the summer of 2020.

Live and interactive online.

The course starts on Monday 6th April. Normally the course runs for 1 week. Due to the exceptional circumstances we find ourselves in we have decided to divide the course in two. Part one will finish on Friday 10th. Part 2 will start on 13th and finish on 17th April. This will allow more time off for students during the course.

See the timetable above!

For Leaving certs we have a timetable from which you can choose which subjects you want to do. So for example at 9am you can choose between Economics  or Biology. You pick one and do that subject live and interactive for the 5 days of the course at the same time. When you are finished doing that subject you can then choose another subject at the 10.25am slot.

For Junior certs there is one subject on at each time slot so you  do that subject live and interactive for the 5 days.

No. The topics covered in both classes will be the same. These are to give you a choice.

Yes maths A is Probability and Statistics and B is Calculus.
