It is challenging. But if you adopt the right attitude straight away it can be a lot easier. I would advise anyone to be a hard worker and maintain a positive attitude. Also be organised, right down to keeping notes. You start your career in college, not after it.

Realist?
Realist
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Junior Cycle - Jewish Studies

Subject Group: Humanities
These subjects explore the ways in which humans live and communicate in the world. Human life is examined by looking at our past, our present and into our future. These subjects help people to express themselves clearly and develop their reasoning ability.

Brief Description:
Jewish Studies seeks to promote an understanding of Judaism as a major world religion and to give students an appreciation of its historical, literary and cultural contribution to the world.
How will Jewish Studies be useful to me?
Students taking Jewish Studies will develop an understanding and appreciation of different beliefs, peoples and cultures and a tolerance and respect for the values and beliefs of all.

In today's increasingly diverse culture, it is important to have an understanding of the different cultural and religious traditions found not just in Ireland, but in Europe and the wider world.

Jewish Studies also contributes to the development of skills such as historical and literary investigation, working with evidence, information processing, argumentation, critical thinking and analysis. It has links with other subjects such as Civics, Social SPHE, Religious Education, and History.
