Junior Cycle Update
As directed by the Minister of Education, Junior Cycle has been cancelled and there is no State based Certification for Junior Cycle. The Minister has directed all schools to run assessments in the month of May and award an Athy College Achievement Report.
End of term assessments for 3rd year will go ahead in the final 2 weeks of May. The format of these exams will be online assessments. Our subject departments have decided on these and will communicate dates and assessments with students through email and Google Classroom.
The May assessment is only a part of their Junior Cert/Cycle exams. Subjects will use a combination of assessment/coursework/practical work and mock exams to determine each student's final grade.
The school will produce an Athy College Achievement Report over the course of the June to recognise each student’s abilities, achievements and performance. They will receive a final grade for each subject, as well as the marks for their completed CBA’s.
This Achievement Report will also be available to parents through our online VSware system,
