Minister Confirms Leaving Cert Exams Will Get Underway At The End Of July

A start date for the Leaving Cert of Wednesday July the 29th has been set by the Minister for Education.

Joe McHugh told the Dáil last night that a schedule for the exams will be released in the first week of June.
The confirmation has been welcomed by teachers' unions.
However President of the TUI, Seamus Lahart, says the exam timetable will also impact the start date for the new college year and people will have to learn to work around that.
