Leaving Certificate students will be able to access their results online or at their school on Friday September 3rd.
However, they will have a ‘very short’ timeframe to lodge appeals, the State Examinations Commission (SEC) has said.
Students this year had the choice of sitting written exams, opting for accredited grades, or both, across individual subjects.
School historical data is not being used for calculating Leaving Certificate students’ accredited grades this year – but further “refinements” to last year’s system are being explored.
A guide to the results process for the Leaving Certificate released by theSEC on Thursday said students will be able to access their results from 10am on Friday September 3rd.
On the day on which the results are issued, neither candidates nor schools will know whether the provisional result awarded was from an examination or an Accredited Grade, the SEC said. However, they will have access to this information four days after they receive their results.
The examination results and the accredited grades will be brought together only for the purposes of determining the better result for those candidates who have opted for both.
