Frogcast 3 - Preparing for Leaving Certificate Agricultural Science


Continuing our series of podcasts, Humphrey Jones, the Agricultural Science teacher in St. Columba’s College, takes a look at the Leaving Certificate Ag Science paper and tries to offer some advice and tips to pupils preparing for the exam in June. Mr Jones takes a look at the structure of the exam, focuses on particular questions, and outlines how marks are awarded in each area. He also offers some advice on approaching the short questions, scientific explanations, the experiments and drawing diagrams and graphs in the exam. The Ag. Science paper can be difficult to predict, but knowing how the exam is laid out and marked will allow you to structure your answers effectively to obtain full marks .

Mr. Jones and the Frog Blog team would like to gratefully acknowledge the help, time and advice of one of Ireland’s most successful Agricultural Science teachers, Stephanie Flannery from De la Salle in Waterford City, in the preparation of this podcast. Thank you Stephanie!
