Hi all
I know there is 4 modules for the junior Certificate. William is planning on doing a video diary as part of it. Would this be acceptable & can anyone give examples of what course work is required

2.1 The candidate must present a diary of beekeeping produced over a six week
period, describing the work carried out by the candidate or a group in which the
candidate was an active participant. The diary need not necessarily be fully
produced by the candidate, but the candidate should have made a
contribution and be able to answer questions on and talk about the content. Hive
records are not sufficient. Pass/Fail

2.4 The candidate will present a piece of creative work, linked to one
objective/clause of the syllabus, which they have produced. This could be a
piece of written work, a model, a sculpture, a painting, a collage etc. Pass/Fail

Don't see why not. Can clarify with Val from the exam board though for you.

Val says: if it’s for coursework (not the diary requirement) and the candidate can discuss the making of the video and content then any sort of beekeeping video is acceptable.
