Study Clix

A really handy website which offers access to exam questions as well as sample answers, videos and study advice for both Junior and Leaving Cert students

This is a great website for making notes on. You can create your own flashcards, mindmaps and
quizzes on this site. There is also a great app which means you always have your flashcards with you
(as long as you have your phone.) So if you are smart you will have created a bank of flashcards that
you can practice whenever you have time to kill; waiting on a bus, sitting on the bus, a spare 10
minutes in the afternoon. You will never see a minute wasted again!
Goconqr offers you an added bonus. You can connect with your friends and as a result you can share
resources. This would be great if you were part of a study group.

The Department of Education and Skills have now given you free access to exam papers
going back over 20 years. That’s a lot of questions that you could be practicing. You can also download the marking
scheme for every subject. This information is invaluable. You can see exactly what the examiner is
looking for in your answer. I wish I had of been privy to this kind of knowledge when I was a student!
This is also a great website for information. You can download the Leaving Cert Exam Timetable, Key
Dates for exam students and all kinds of information about the exams.This website is a great
reference point and is definitely worth getting familiar with.

This website provides so much information for Leaving Cert and Junior Cert students. The website has short videos
and flashcards uploaded to help you study. You can sign up with the site. Membership is free and
this allows you to bookmark pages, log your own notes and create a study timetable.

This is an interactive and fun website to help you with your languages. You will find Irish and your
modern language on this site. You simply register and create an account.
Once your level has been pitched you can then start taking the interactive exercises to practice your
vocabulary and grammar. You can choose from 5, 10 or 15 minute exercises and set yourself a target
of how regularly you want to practice. You will receive email reminders to do your language practice.

Sparknotes is an amazing resource for English literature for Junior Cert and for Leaving Cert. It has
detailed notes for all major works of literature.
An amazing feature of this site is ‘No Fear Shakespeare.’ The major Shakespearean plays are
‘translated’ word-for-word into modern English. You will never find yourself stuck on a soliloquy
again. In addition to this Sparknotes provides detailed notes on characters and themes. A must for
English scholars.

While it is not specifically designed for the Irish school system, there is a lot of relevant information here to help you out. The
Maths section of the course is quite extensive. There is also an in-depth section on the sciences;
Biology, Physics and Chemistry. There are various modes of learning on this site: videos, quizzes,
notes. Economics is also featured on this website as well as Art History. The site is definitely
impressive and worth a browse.
