The State Examinations Commission (SEC) will issue this year’s Leaving Certificate results on Friday, September 2nd.
The results are traditionally issued in mid-August, with first round CAO offers made a few days later.
However, this year’s inclusion of additional sittings of the exams for students impacted by bereavement or illness has delayed the final issuing of results.
This year’s date is in line with the 2021 results, which were issued on Friday, September 3rd.
The delayed release date is also on account of the Minister for Education’s commitment that the overall results will be “no lower, in the aggregate” than 2021’s results, adding another stage of checks to the correction process.
The SEC also has to deal with shortages in the numbers of teachers required to fill examiner positions to mark written examinations, and while the correction of scripts has already begun, the SEC is continuing to recruit examiners.
The exam results will be released through the Candidate Self-Service Portal on the SEC website, with further information being sent by email to candidates
