Both the NCCA and the Department of Education and Skills have recently published revised assessment arrangements of particular relevance to Business Studies.  These documents make reference to a reduction in the number of Classroom Based Assessments that the student cohort 2018-2021 (i.e. third year students 2020/21) will be required to complete and to an extension of the CBA1 deadline into the first term of the school year 2020/21.  They also refer to the removal of the requirement for students sitting the junior cycle exams in 2021 to complete an Assessment Task.
