Gavin Cowzer Speaks To RTÉ Radio 1

Yesterday, Tuesday 19th of January, our Head English Teacher Gavin Cowzer was invited to speak on RTÉ Radio 1’s ‘Drivetime’ about the English paper in this year’s Leaving Certificate.

Speaking to Evelyn O’Rourke during the Study Hub segment, Gavin gave an excellent account of how to tackle English for Leaving Cert including:

  • A breakdown of the papers including marks for each section,
  • How to plan your time during the exam,
  • What the examiners are looking for,
  • Structuring your essays,
  • And who he’s focussing on for the Studied Poetry section.

If you missed this broadcast, you can tune in below or else visit the RTÉ Radio 1 website!

Plus, until Friday, 22nd January, we’ve made one of Gavin’s 75 minute English classes available completely free on our website with a copy of the accompanying notes. In this class, he’ll be going through one of the Studied Poets for 2021, Sylvia Plath. This is not one to miss!
