Almost 57,000 Leaving Certificate students will receive their results today

Results will be available in schools this morning and online from midday

Almost 57,000 Leaving Certificate students will receive their results today, and the results will be available in schools this morning and online at examinations.ie from midday.

One student received 9 A1 grades in the exam, while 13 students received 8 A1 grades and fifty students received 7 A1 grades.

Meanwhile, the number of Leaving Certificate students opting to sit the higher level maths paper has risen again, according to this year’s exam results, which are published today.

27% of maths students took the higher level paper this year, compared to just 16% three years ago.

The rise in numbers opting for the higher level maths paper, for the third year running, could be attributed to two factors: the introduction of bonus CAO points for a D grade or higher at that level, and the impact of the new Project Maths curriculum.

If you are concerned, please talk to someone. Free exam helpline: 1800-265-165

For the majority of students it will be a happy occasions, however, there will be others that are disappointed. There are still many options and contingency plans available for students who do not do as well as they hope in the Leaving Certificate.

“I would say to them first and foremost, if they are upset … these are only results. They don’t define them as people and they will not define the wonderful people that they are and that they will become.

“I would say talk to your guidance counsellor – you will get your contingency plan there.”

Betty McLaughlin, President of the Institute of Guidance Counsellors
