Date confirmed for Leaving Cert results
Leaving Cert students will receive their results on the 25th of August.
That’s more than a week earlier than last year, which left many students scrambling for accommodation just days before their college course began.
The date is still later than the traditional Leaving Cert results day, which was in the first two weeks of August pre-pandemic.
Education Minister Norma Foley believes there’s enough examiners in place to have the grades returned in August.
“I think that the fact that the SEC (State Examinations Commission) are not out presently still recruiting I think that speaks for itself, the SEC are in a better position to confirm that.
“We can also look at how well the orals have been run, I’m confident they’re very satisfied that they have the appropriate compliment that’s required for the exams for correction.”
