Revision to Assessment Arrangements for Leaving Certificate Art (for first examination in 2018)

Revised arrangements are being put in place for students entering Leaving Certificate Year 1 in September 2016 and taking their examinations in 2018 and thereafter.

The revision to the practical components will include execution of the Imaginative Composition or Still Life component and the Craft or Design component as coursework in schools over an extended period of time. Both components will also be based on a single set of stimulus materials. The Life Sketching and History and Appreciation of Art examinations will continue to be held at the same time of year as they are currently.
