Top 5 Tips
1. Familiarise yourself with the layout of the exam paper and the format of the different question areas e.g. Sections A, B and C
2. Ensure you answer all previous exam questions. Check out the possible solutions on www.examinations.ie afterwards to identify areas you might need to improve on. Place completed exam questions in a folder sub divided into Section A, Section B Q 1,2,3,4,5, and Section C.
3. Create a revision timetable for Home Economics for the last term; allow yourself plenty of time to write revision notes and to spend time on areas you may have forgotten to study previously.
4. Remember to answer all parts to a question if you omit a section you will be losing valuable marks.
5. Always answer in point format and label your questions clearly.
