Approaching Senior Cycle Programme 3rd Year Students must consider 3 options:
1. To take a Transition Year Programme followed by the regular two-year Leaving Certificate.
Any Third Year student may apply for this, but it is particularly recommended for those who are a little younger than the norm, i.e. under 15 years of age on the 1st of January this year (or 17 years or younger sitting the Leaving Certificate).
2. To take the Leaving Certificate Programme.
Students should keep further studies at 3rd level in mind when selecting their subjects for Leaving Certificate.
3. To take the Leaving Certificate Applied Programme.
The Leaving Certificate Applied is a distinct, self-contained two-year programme aimed at preparing students for adult and working life. This programme is designed to cater for the needs of students for whom the ordinary Leaving Certificate courses are not appropriate.
