Maths Time Trials: Leaving Certificate 2019
Want to test yourself against one of the country’s best Maths teachers?
The Maths Time Trial is an intensive 4-hour class that aims to turn your competitive nature into a stimulating, interactive, learning exercise.
Renowned maths teacher Brendan Guildea will pose a series of challenges to students, who then work through the questions in a time trial against him. In the process Brendan will provide students with a series of tips and tricks on how to approach the more challenging questions in the Leaving Certificate maths exams.
Questions will cover Paper I and Paper II and students will be provided with complete worked solutions.
Designed for students who are aiming for at least a H2 in the Leaving Certificate this June, the class is intended to build overall maths fluency and higher level maths exam skills.

Q: Can I be admitted to class without my card?
A: NO CARD, NO CLASS. It is every student’s personal responsibility to ensure they have their card with them each time they attend classes at the Institute. We have the right to refuse admission to any student who does not comply with this regulation. A day pass costs €10. A replacement card costs €20.
Q: Is there a place I can get lunch?
A: Yes, we have an onsite canteen serving a variety of sandwiches and drinks. Also, locally, there are sandwich bars and shops.
Q: Are the classes conducted ‘lecture style’ or are students free to ask questions?
A: Our teachers are very approachable and students are free to ask questions.
Q: My son/daughter is unwell and cannot attend. Can I have a refund?
A: No, there are no refunds. However, if you return the student’s admission card to us immediately, along with a short letter of explanation, at the discretion of management, a credit note can be put on the student’s file for future use or for use by a sibling.
Q: My son/daughter cannot attended the course. Can we buy the notes?
A: No. Teaching is a central part of all our courses. The notes are to facilitate recall and revision of the day’s work covered by the teacher.
Q: Am I entitled to the notes from classes that I was absent from?
A: Yes, however you must deal directly with your teacher in relation to this. Administration staff do not have access to class notes.
