“For the 2021 Leaving Certificate German oral examinations, the classroom teacher and/or the candidates can choose which three of the five picture sequences (where the picture sequence option is chosen) and which three of the five role plays they wish to present for examination purposes i.e. the choice can be made at classroom level.
It is not essential that the entire class presents the same three picture sequences and/or the
same three role plays i.e. it is possible that the choice varies within a class/school group.
The choice will be made known to the Oral Examiner on the day of the oral examination.”
