Postponed Leaving Certificate written exams will commence on November 16th

Minister for Education Norma Foley has announced that the postponed Leaving Certificate examinations will begin on Monday 16 November, subject to public health advice and talks with those involved.

These written exams are for those who couldn’t get Calculated Grades, because they mightn’t have a teacher in a particular subject, and for those who opted to sit them instead of receiving a Calculated Grade.

Those who are unhappy with the Calculated Grade they received, which are due to be released to students on 7 September, can also sit a written exam as a way of appealing their Calculated Grade.

The examinations will be scheduled for evenings and at the weekend.
