Minister announces postponement of 2020 Leaving Certificate examinations

Minister announces postponement of 2020 Leaving Certificate examinations. There are two main phases in the process of arriving at a calculated grade: School-based and national standardisation.
Both phases are underpinned by the principles of teacher professionalism, support for students, objectivity, fairness and equity, collaboration and timeliness.
In addition, and in the spirit of fairness to all Leaving Certificate students, the option of sitting the Leaving Certificate examinations when it becomes feasible to hold them remains open to all students.

   A guidance document for the education system and others in relation to the system of Calculated Grades is available on the Department’s website here.

Our Leaving Certifiacte students have been assured that the Sixth Year Support Team will be contactable to give support following this announcement, over the weekend and throughout. 

"We hope for a fair and equitable outcome and that the powers that be will come up with a solution that will provide closure and progression opportunities for all students. 
Please e-mail me if you have any concerns and rest assured that we will be available to answer any questions that you and your parents might have at this uncertain time".
