What is a JCPA?

Instead of receiving a certificate containing just your JC results, you will receive a Junior Cycle Profile of Achievement (JCPA).

This JCPA (Junior Cycle Profile of Achievement) will contain:

  1. The results of your JC State Exams.
  2. The results/descriptors for your completed Classroom Based Assessment/s
  3. Information on ‘Other Areas of Learning’ you have undertaken during 1st, 2nd and 3rd year in school.
