Politics And Society

Politics & Society is a great Leaving Certificate subject to take if you have an interest in areas such as Law, Politics, Sociology, History, Geography, English, Anthropology, Philosophy, or Media Studies.

The course will be taught by Bridget O’Riordan. Bridget is noted for her passionate outlook on the course and believes it is a subject that will benefit all students in their future. She was one of the first teachers in Cork to teach the subject in 2016. Of the 19 pupils in her 2018 Leaving Certificate class, 95% received a H3 or higher, 84% received a H2 or higher, whilst more than half of her students received a H1.

The subject assessment consists of a final written examination worth 80% of the marks and a coursework component, a Citizenship Project Report, worth 20% of the marks available for the subject.

Complementary subjects: Geography, English, and History.
