Assessment in the Senior Cycle includes both school-based assessments and external examinations. The school-based assessments, such as project work, practical coursework, and oral examinations, provide opportunities for you to demonstrate your knowledge, research skills, and ability to work independently. The external examinations, such as the Leaving Certificate, assess your understanding of the subject content and your ability to apply that knowledge to different scenarios.
