Leaving Cert 2020- postponement

"This summer's Leaving Cert exams have been cancelled, with Minister for Education Joe McHugh revealing details of an alternative plan.

All students are to be offered the option of accepting calculated grades instead of sitting Leaving Certificate written examinations at a later date in new plans announced this afternoon.

There will be four layers to the calculated grades system:

  • An estimation of scores and rankings by a student's teacher. The teacher will estimate a percentage mark for each student, and also their ranking compared to classmates. This will happen for each individual subject. 
  • This will then be subjected to an in-school alignment process, in which subject teachers will work together to finalise their estimated marks and rankings. 
  • The school principal will review and sign off on marks, and may return estimated ranking or marks to teachers for further consideration.
  • A process of national standardisation using statistical methods to ensure a common national standard is applied. "
