Papers strike a nice chord despite 'challenging' parts

Junior Certificate Music

Papers at both higher and ordinary level struck a nice chord with Junior Certificate music students.

"Overall, both papers offered a well-prepared student a chance to do well," said teacher Enda O'Connor.

One of the more challenging aspects was where students had to fill in blanks in a cloze-type paragraph. And the wording in the chosen works section was different to what the students would have been used to and may have taken some time to complete.

Many students find dictation challenging and this year was no exception.

However, Mr O'Connor, of St Brendan's Community School in Birr, Co Offaly, said the set songs section in the listening was "very straightforward".

He also said composing offered a good choice.
