No major surprises with finishing line in sight

PUPILS enjoyed a "fair" Junior Certificate technology paper, as the end of the exams looms close, writes Louise Hogan.

The ASTI's Kieran Christie, of St Attracta's Community School, Sligo, felt both the higher and ordinary-level papers were "appropriate" for their levels.

"Overall, the papers examined all the key areas of the syllabus," he said.

"They were fair papers and the questions were set at the appropriate level. Pupils would have been quite content and there were no major surprises."

Mr Christie's only "quibble" lay with question 2 at higher level, as he felt the question concentrated on only one aspect of electronics and could have been more varied.

"I also spoke to a few other teachers who teach technology and they were happy with it," he said.
