Abstract

Because of differences between and within second-level schools in the length of the curriculum offered to pupils, and because of the differing usage of extra tutoring outside of schools by pupils themselves, entrants to universities show considerable diversity in the quantity of second-level schooling they have received. This paper analyses first-year students in University College, Cork, in 1989 to examine this diversity and its links with social class and with patterns of faculty enrolment within the university. It concludes that inequalities in the quantity of second-level schooling received parallel other inequalities in the Irish education system and so intensify the inegalitarian nature of that system.
