Leaving Cert Biology: Simply the Best Revision Course Available
Stephanie Ledwith and Marie Therese Molloy have taught Higher Level Leaving Cert Biology for over 30 years (combined). A number of our Leaving Cert Biology Revision Course students have achieved the highest possible (A1) grades. In 2016, Saorise Pagel, who won the medal awarded by the Institute of Biology of Ireland to the person who receives the highest numerical score in the Leaving Cert exam, highly commended this course and the Lecture Book for her achievement.
“Thank you very much for all your help last week. I just wanted to email and say the students had a fantastic day and learned a great deal at your Leaving Cert Biology Day. I will be recommending you to teachers in different schools and sending students again in the future. The notes they received are of an outstanding standard, thank you “-Gavin Kenny of Avondale community College Biology Day 2017 at the Royal College of Surgeons
