 Students  complete this junior cycle subject as a compulsory subject.  They then proceed to senior cycle (upper secondary education) where they choose from a range of programmes over a two or three year cycle. Senior cycle (upper secondary education) generally covers the ages 15 to 18 years.

New features of this specification include learning outcomes across the unifying strand, Nature of science, and the four contextual strands: Physical world, Chemical world, Biological world and Earth and space.There is a new focus given to the Nature of science which aims to promote greater engagement and thinking about how science works; carrying out investigations, communicating in science, and the role and contribution of science and scientists to society. There are also new assessments which offers students a chance to demonstrate their achievement as creators of scientific research reports.

Teachers, students and parents will be able to check progress by logging in to samples of student work where they will see the range of annotated examples of work that students in junior cycle Science create and see the learning outcomes in action


The students are involved in experiments and discovery learning in all classes.

The course is divided into Physics, Chemistry, Ag Science and Biology. Since 2003 an experimental aspect to the subject has been examined, where students perform their own experiment and write up a report about it. This goes towards 20% of the written exam .
