Subjects continue to play an important role in junior cycle programmes. The NCCA will develop new curriculum specifications for the subjects listed in the table.

The new curriculum specifications for subjects will be outcomes-based and in most cases, they will be common level specifications. The exception to this will be the subjects English, Gaeilge and Mathematics where the specification will be at two levels, Higher level and Ordinary level.

* The junior cycle subjects Latin, Greek, and Classical Studies were reviewed in 2010. A decision was taken to merge them into a single subject called Classics. This new subject will be included in the new junior cycle.
