Students can opt for individual terms or the full year program.

1st year grinds are to help students that may not have a good grounding in essential subjects or may need extra help understanding new concepts and ways of learning. our 1st year grinds classes are small workshop style classes that help build students confidence with their subject in parallel with the work they are doing in school.

2nd year grinds classes start to look at subjects with respect to the junior certificate exam and the types of questions asked on exam papers. Each topic is covered and students are given previous exam questions on their topic to review. An introduction to the marking scheme and how they should study their subject will have them bring up their confidence even further.

3rd Year Grinds compliment the Junior Certificate program helping students focus on the areas they need more assistance with and how to approach studying and the exam papers. The 3rd year grinds program focuses on the exam preparation, how to study and covers the Junior Certificate Syllabus over two terms. Maths is broken into Higher & Ordinary Level classes.

Our teachers are experienced and qualified secondary school teachers with state examinations experience. They are NOT tutors. Extensive revision notes will be provided on each subject topic. Language based grinds will have oral preparation work and a mock oral where required for students sitting Irish, French, Spanish & German.

Whether you want to move up a few grades or focus on remaining at higher level subjects with extra revision the Junior Certificate Program is essential. Our teachers and tutors are experienced second level teachers with exam year experience and exam marking experience and language (Oral exam) examiners.
