German second best

This year 5,154 students sat the Higher German Leaving Cert Paper compared to 4,722 last year and 2,118 students did the Ordinary Level  compared to 2,135 last year.

26,798 students sat the French papers this year.

8.6 per cent of students sitting the Higher Level German Paper received an A1 grade whereas 6.4 per cent of students sitting the French Higher Paper received an A1.

Why are there so few studying German?

285 students sat Russian and 70.5 per cent received an A1 grade on the Higher Paper.
