Industry lobby group IBEC has said that radical reform of junior cycle assessment and teaching methods in secondary schools could have a profound and positive impact on education outcomes.
The call for reform comes on a day when almost 59,000 students will receive Junior Certificate results, reflecting a 3.4 per cent rise from last year. Almost 600,000 individual grades in 26 different subjects are being delivered to the 28,891 female and 29,907 male candidates in this year’s examination.
