CAO

If you have applied to the CAO you will get your first round offer on Friday 11th September.

You must reply to that offer by 3pm on Wednesday 16th September.

Second round offers are released on 23rd September, third round on 1st October, and fourth round on 8th October.

Appealing

If you're not happy with your Leaving Cert results you can appeal.

The appeals process opens on Monday 14th September until Wednesday 16th September at 5pm.

You submit your appeal via the Calculated Grades Student Portal here.

Predicted grades

Maybe you're wondering how your grades were decided.

Here's a quick run through:

  1. Your teacher has given you a predicted grade in the form of a percentage.
  2. In addition, your teacher ranked your class and where you are based in comparison.
  3. Your grade may have been adjusted using a national standardisation process in order to make the results as fair as possible.

This means the grade your teacher gave you and the grade you ended up with can be different.

From 9am on Monday 14th September you'll be able to see the grade your teacher gave via the Calculated Grades Student Portal.

According to the Department of Education 79.3% of grades remain unchanged.

3.9% increased and 16.8% decreased.
