Over 61,000 students will receive their Leaving Cert Results from 10am this morning.

The class of 2021 had the opportunity of receiving accredited grades, sitting the exam or both.

Provisional results will be available this morning at examinations-dot-ie

Education Minister Norma Foley says this year's students have missed so much in class education due to the Pandemic, but they rose to the challenge.


According to today’s Irish Times, Leaving Cert results have climbed to a record high with a sharp increase in the number of students securing top grades.

The stronger outcomes are set to lead to a further jump in CAO points for college courses and may fuel concern over grade inflation and the integrity of grades.

New figures show that results, overall, are 2.6 per cent ahead of 2020’s record-breaking results. These, in turn, were 4.4. percent ahead of the 2019 exams.
