Students who sat last year’s deferred Leaving Certificate exams will receive their results at midday today.
Just 62 students in Donegal opted to do the written Leaving Cert exams last November and December.
While the Junior Cert exams were cancelled in 2020, adult learners and early school leavers were given the option to take these exams. A total of 47 candidates in Ireland presented for the exams across nine subjects. Results will be issues to the centres where they sat the examinations.
From 12 noon today, Leaving Certificate candidates may access their results through the SEC’s Candidate Self Service Portal accessible at www.examinations.ie and https://www.gov.ie/leavingcertificate/
A total of 2,155 candidates sat exams across 48 subjects, with most taking three or fewer subjects.
Candidates will see exactly how they performed in the written examinations and will be able to print a statement of their examination results. Students who received calculated grades will continue to have access to their calculated grades through the same website links so they can make their own comparison between their examination results and their calculated grades.
Some 1,136 candidates received results which are higher than calculated grades in one or more of their subjects.
The State Examinations Commission says it has provided the Central Applications Office (CAO) with details of the Leaving Certificate Examination results for candidates who were not provided with Calculated Grades. For candidates who received calculated grades and who also sat Leaving Certificate 2020, the CAO has been notified of the higher subject grade achieved between the calculated grade and the written examination.
The State Examinations Commission helpline will open at 9 am on 2nd February, and will remain open until the appeal application closing date of Friday, 12th February at 5pm. The helpline can be contacted at 1800 100 135 and is available each day from 9am until 5pm.
