Are the CBAs important
Do the CBA’s matter at all??
Hey there! Welcome to Ask Alex,
It’s completely normal to feel a bit confused or overwhelmed about things like CBA’s. It’s okay to have questions and uncertainties – you’re not alone in this.
We understand that the pressure of CBA’s can be quite intense. It’s important to recognise that your feelings are valid. As you embark on this journey, remember that your well-being matters just as much as your academic performance. You’re not defined solely by your grades, and there are numerous paths to success.
Have you thought about reaching out to friends, family, or teachers about your thoughts on CBAs? They may be better able to guide you with specific guidelines to you. However, here is what the Department of Education in Ireland say about CBAs for the Junior Cert programme ncca.ie/media/6316/key-dates-for-cbas-2023-2024_en.pdf. There are also some articles on the Childline website about school and exams if you would like to have a look www.childline.ie/education-and-work/.
Childline is here to support you through both the challenges and victories of school. Consider exploring different study techniques or asking for help when needed – everyone has their unique way of learning, and it’s okay to find what works best for you.
You can contact the Childline team by freephone on 1800 66 66 66 or through Live Chat on our website childline.ie. Your call or chat will be confidential and non-judgmental. The services are open 24/7/365.
