The State Examinations Commission has announced that the Leaving Certificate Results will be issued to students on Friday 2nd September. This is the third year that results have beeen issued later than the usual mid-august date due to the Covid 19 pandemic.
The SEC have said that 2 September was chosen as the date for a number of reasons including the following:The provision of a deferred sitting of the examination for candidates who experience close family bereavement or who are unable to sit their examinations due to serious accident, injury or illness; or on public health grounds due to Covid-19
Giving effect to the Minister for Education’s commitment that the overall set of results in 2022 will be no lower, in the aggregate, than the 2021 results
Addressing the impact of shortages in the numbers of teachers required to fill examiner positions to mark the written examinations (while marking has already started, the SEC is continuing to recruit examiners noting that Covid-19 is also having an impact)
In advance of the issue of the results, sufficient time must be allowed for an extensive range of checks and quality assurance procedures which are required in the resulting process to ensure that the highest standards possible are maintained
