5th Year Agricultural Science 5th Year Extra Subjects

Leaving Cert Agricultural Science looks at the science and technology of farming. The subject has grown in popularity in recent years as Agriculture has become one of the major growth sectors in our economy, providing many jobs.

Many students are now taking Ag Science up as an extra subject outside of school because:

  • There is excellent overlap for students already studying Biology and/or Geography
  • Continuous assessment of the practical elements of the course accounts for 25% of the overall mark
  • It is recognised as a Laboratory Science subject for almost all 3rd Level courses, including Nursing

The Dublin Academy of Education will provide students with everything they need to maximise their marks in the practical and written aspects of this course, from detailed and comprehensive study notes to dedicated field trips.

Practical Portfolios will be worked on within class time and as part of the course, students will undertake laboratory experiments.
