Every year there’s always a few students who don’t quite make the mark on their exams and fall short of a pass, sometimes only by a few points. This year, there were a few subjects that didn’t have that problem, and all higher level students managed to pass their exam with not one single failure.
Whether the subject was easy as pie, or just taught extremely well, this is impressive for a higher level subject, with most other subjects having at least a one or two percent of fail rate.
With only 350 people studying this subject, Russian has one of the lowest numbers of participants, and with no fail rates for the last two years, it seems to be doing well. 63.7% percent of the students sitting this exam received a H1 in the subject, giving it the highest amount of top marks out of all the subjects this year. Only 0.9 of student managed to get a H7, which still awards them 37 points. No students received a H8, completely failing the course.
2. Modern Greek
Only 18 people studied Modern Greek this year, making it one of the lowest studied subjects in the country. As well as that, it has no fail rate either. 33.3% of the students sitting the exam successfully got a H1 in the subject, awarding them 100 points in the CAO. Along with that, only 5.6 percent got a H7 in the subject. Πήρες Α στο τεστ; Συγχαρητήρια!
Again, with a shockingly low number of participants, Croatian also got a 0% fail rate on the exam. The 47 people who sat the exam all faired pretty well, with the majority (29.8%) getting a H2 in the exam, and 27.7% on a H1. 2.1% managed to get a H7, and 0% getting a H6.
Another low number of participants, with only 29 students who sat this exam, and not a single one of them managed to fail and were all awarded points for the CAO system. 27.6% of students got got full marks on the exam, and only 3.4% got a H7.
5. Ancient Greek.
With the lowest number of students who sat this exam out of all the other subjects, (only 12) these students must really love the language because not a single paper was left with zero marks. 25% received a H1, 8.3% got a H2, 25% got a H3, and zero percent of people got a H7 or a H8.
Congratulations to all subjects who made the cut! Future Leaving Cert students might want to take note and look into these languages and start studying. With a 0% fail rate, where could you go wrong?
