A tough paper, which spanned a wide variety of topics on the syllabus and required students to have an in-depth knowledge of the course, was how Mona Murray , a teacher at the Institute of Education, Dublon described the Leaving Certificate Biology Higher Level paper.
“Students would need to have known the fine details of the syllabus in order to answer all parts of the questions.
She said the paper required very careful reading, with “some questions that were quite indirect and students were required to think outside the box.”
She said while some of the questions were straight forward and should not have posed many problems, others were far more testing.
