Hi coleary

You might find the following link useful. It´s a link to the data on the Examinations.ie website showing the number of students who have sat each subject in the leaving cert over the last three years and the percentages of grades received , i.e. what % received As,Bs etc. Religion appears on the 7th page.

Just wondering now if it is possible to do as a subject, outside of school, anywhere in Cork?

From what I gather, almost all schools provide religion up to Junior Cert but hardly any do so to Leaving Cert. i also understand that at Leaving Cert Honours level, it is not the ´doss´ subject that some imagine it might be. I´m afraid I don´t have statistics but it should be easy enough to get them through Department of Education.

I know that it is possible to do religion as a subject for Leaving Cert. Does anybody know if many schools provide it as an option to study for Leaving cert and what is the success rate, or otherwise, of those who take religion for Leaving cert?
