A fair paper, which gave students great scope with a range of topical, relevant and interesting questions, was how teacher Orla Ni Shuilleabhain described Leaving Certificate German Higher Level.

Ms Ni Shuilleabhain said students could have identified with a lot of the material on the paper.

“In the written section there was something for everyone” said the Institute of Education, Dublin, teachers. 

While  Section 1 of the aural exam “was nice and gave scope to them all”, she thought  Section 2 was challenging and difficult in parts. “The speaker was a bit difficult to understand at times” she said.
