Leaving Cert results to be issued directly to students through online portal on 7 September
The final details on the release of Leaving Cert results have officially been confirmed.
Leaving Cert results will be issued directly to students through an online portal at 9am on 7 September.
Minister for Education Norma Foley confirmed the news on Tuesday, while also urging students to opt-in to the Calculated Grades Student Portal before the deadline of 4pm on Monday 27 July.
Tuesday also saw confirmation that CAO offers will be made on 11 September, and will have to be accepted by 16 September. Second round offers will be made on 23 September for acceptance on 25 September.
Students who wish to appeal a calculated grade will be able to do so from 14 September.
Foley said: "It is important that we recognise the unique set of circumstances for these students, and that we all ensure they get the support that they need.
"I am confident that schools will, through their support teams, ensure that the students they have supported and nurtured throughout their post-primary education will be supported on this important day and the following days.
"I am pleased that we have been able to bring clarity for students on how and when the results will be issued and how they will be supported.
"Creating an entirely new system of Calculated Grades has been a huge and challenging task. The contribution of the stakeholders and their involved input at every stage has been key in getting to this point.
"I know what a stressful time this is for students. The wellbeing of the students and the integrity and fairness of the system are the most important things to me, and
"I will continue to work with the stakeholders to ensure that we get the best possible and fairest results for our students."
