The Junior Cycle

Dublin Oak Academy is authorized by the Irish Department of Education and Science to present the Irish National Junior Certificate Exam. The Junior Certificate examinations are held at the end of the Junior Cycle in Irish post-primary schools.

The Junior Cycle is aimed for students in the 13 to 15 year old age group. Students normally sit their examinations at the age of 14 or 15, after 3 years of post-primary education. In Dublin Oak Academy, the senior students prepare in an academic year the content that Irish students would cover in three years.

This examination is recognized by all European Union countries.
