Deputy Mary Hanafin Deputy Mary Hanafin
Deputy Mary Hanafin: The Programme for Government detailed the introduction of a new syllabus for Leaving Certificate Agricultural Science. Work on the revised syllabus for Agricultural Science has largely been completed by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA). However, the assessment arrangements for the revised syllabus have not yet been finalised as they will have to be considered in the context of the assessment of other senior cycle science subjects, including the introduction of a second assessment component.
