Junior Certificate of Education (JCE)

What is a JCE?

The Junior Certificate of Education is a school based junior schooling qualification awarded to eligible students at the end of Year 9 on successful completion of the junior phase of learning.

At Ormeau Woods SHS, the JCE has been strategically designed with 3 aspects in mind:

  • As an explicit framework to track student progress and engagement

  • A tool to enable students to self-regulate their own learning through a     systemic cycle of inquiry

  • Recognition of students readiness to embark on their Senior Schooling journey 

How the JCE Works

For a student to be awarded a JCE they will need to achieve a significant amount of learning, at a set standard ā€“ including being literate and numerate. This requires achieving a ā€˜Cā€™ standard or higher in a number of core and elective subjects across 2 Semesters in Year 9.

To be awarded the Ormeau Woods SHS Junior Certificate of Education (JCE) students must at the completion of Year 9:

  • Accumulate at least 10 out of the 12 available credits.

  • Achieve a C standard or better in English & Maths

Year 7 and 8 will be regarded as transition years where students will track their results, but only credits achieved in Semester 1 and 2 of Year 9 will be used to achieve the JCE.
