Annie Condren and Chloe Power who were awarded ten A grades each in their Junior Certificate
Congratulations to our students who received their Junior Certificate results today. The school community is very proud of your achievements. A huge amount of our students were awarded A grades in higher level papers and the top performers were as follows:
- Two students were awarded a perfect 10 A grades
- Three students were awarded 9 A grades
- Three students were awarded 8 A grades
- Six students were awarded 7 A grades
All in all this was, a remarkable set of results. Many more students achieved multiple A grades. 36 students were awarded three or more A grades at Higher Level. Our top ten were awarded 85 As between them!
Much concern has been expressed nationally with regard the slipping standards in Maths. 23 of our students achieved an `A` grade in Higher Level Maths - this is 17% of the year group. Nationally, only 8% of students achieved this result. Likewise, nearly double the national average achieved an A,B or C grade in Higher Level Maths (80 of our students were awarded an Honour in Maths).
Congratulations and thanks are also due our teachers who worked with our girls for the three years as they prepared for their examinations. Without their dedication these results would not have been possible.
