The first part of the paper is 20 short questions (60 marks) covering all areas of the course. In section 2 of the paper you must do three long questions. Each long question contains A,B and C parts. The exam lasts for 2 hours so you should spend about 40 mins on the short questions and about 25 minutes on each of the long questions.
Like any Junior/Leaving Certificate subject, Junior Cert Geography aims to give students a firm grasp on the syllabus so as they can either progress into a more detailed study of it (Leaving Certificate) or use it later on in life when necessary. It’s important that you know all your material as there are a number of short questions in the exam that can catch you out if you don#’t know your stuff. Also, please ensure to make sure all your diagrams and sketch maps are clearly labelled.
