Education Minister to issue update on state exams

The Education Minister is expected to announce when the State exams will take place after this morning’s meeting of the National Public Health Emergency Team.

It’s unlikely the Junior and Leaving Cert will take place on the expected start date of June 3rd and will be pushed back to to July, August or even September.

Speaking last night, Health Minister Simon Harris says he expects more clarity today.

“People are asking me about the Leaving Cert and Junior Cert – my understanding is that Joe McHugh, the Minister for Education is hoping to be in a position to make an announcement on that, so hopefully we will have clarity.”
