Practice Makes Perfect
Leaving Certificate 2017 timetable has now been published and Leaving Certificate students are busy preparing themselves for their modern language subject oral examinations, which typically take place around Easter time, and for the crucial written examinations which commence on June 7th 2017.
Once you have covered the topics in your revision schedule the best way to prepare yourself for the rapidly approaching Leaving Certificate examination is to practice oral and written answers to as many questions as possible. Kilroy’s College can help you do this.
Staying motivated when studying for the Leaving Certificate can be really hard during any holiday periods. Whether it is Christmas, New Year or the summer holidays, best intentions can sometimes get waylaid by the festivities as we try to make the most of our down time and holidays.
Kilroy’s College is proud to be able to offer an open and online education to anyone who has the desire to learn regardless of age or ability. We actively encourage people to go back to education and master a new skill. As a result we have had many mature learners studying with us in the College over the past 70 years.
