English Paper 2 (O): An enjoyable and interesting paper

Reaction to Leaving Cert 2019 English Paper 2 (Higher Level) by Jim Lusby, English teacher at The Institute of Education.

Continuing with the style and approach of Paper I, English ordinary level Paper 2 was a comfortable and enjoyable test of a candidate’s knowledge of the course material.

The choices and options were as expected, and without exception the questions were pleasant and interesting, and always accessibly phrased.

In stark, but possibly intentional contrast to the Higher Level Paper 2, it could only have been a relaxed and undemanding exercise for even the reasonably well prepared candidate.
