I'm repeating the leaving cert in Limerick Tutorial College. I'm so glad i dont need to repeat Irish and Maths. But I am taking on two new subjects for points, Geography and Ag Science, which needless to say is a daunting task. It's gonna be a hard year lads, but it'll be worth it!
Repeat leaving cert is now enrolling. It's a good school with a track record of success in bringing students up in points. I know a teacher from Cavan there. He is an excellent Business subjects teacher. He thought me in St. Pat's in Cavan. He has great notes
can you still apply or is it to late?
Ring the school but I think you should be ok. I'm not in the school but they were taking people on monday.
I'm repeating too, it's kind of been on the back of my mind for many months. Glad I am - the next nine months could make a huge difference in the long run!
My reasons - youth, lack of career guidance and the fact that studying was left far too late last year...
I left the studying far to late last year myself. Now I'm looking back thinking what the hell was I thinking leaving it that late. I'm starting from Monday or at least organising what I will study and starting the one after. Definitely starting from around this month and no later.
I'm starting there next week and doing business again. Does he just give you out loads of notes? Was he a good teacher? Does he go through the exam papers?
I didn't do aswell as I could've even though I passed I had a bad teacher who hated the subject and would just read the book and not even show us the right way to answer questions or check how we're getting on.
Their fees aren't on the site, does anyone know what they are and what you need to put down day one?
Same! What on Earth was I thinking! Such a bad decision- definitely would recommend everyone to start early or else they'll be back repeating like myself! :L
I'm doing that too- Starting this month (have already started a bit) and no later. It can make a HUGE difference! Good luck! xx
I'm starting the college classes tomorrow my timetables pretty handy too. I have two half days which is great and the lessons are longer . I have my study timetable made.
Can you tell me what their fees are and how much they want up front, please?
yeah I'm repeating. Is it better to repeat in your old school or in a new school? I hate my old school- don't want to repeat there! Do people get lazy or something when they repeat the LC in their old school?
exactly what I'm taking on!
best of luck everyone! repeating is seriously the best thing I've ever done....I was close to accepting a course I didn't want last year just to move on from school but accepting what I wanted this year made it so worth it! keep the heads down and ye'll all do great, anything is possible if you put the work in and stay positive! It's definitely not easy but nothing in life that's worth it is attained easily!
Also I'd totally recommend Ag Science as a subject for repeating. I'd never stepped on a farm in my life and couldn't tell you a beef cow from a dairy cow starting off and I managed a B1!
Also, for anyone who took up geography "Exam Skills" by Sue Honan is excellent for sample answers!
Hey guys; gotta question about repeating here. If I start to repeat (and then possibly give up repeating) , does that mean I have forfeited my previous leaving Cert and my results are invalid? Thnx
i'm repeating in my old school, i'm a 7th year :/
