Record Grades For Leaving Cert Students

Leaving Cert students have received record grades this year.

Almost 60,000 will receive their results online this morning.
The new calculated grading system, introduced due to Covid-19, shows an increase of 4.4 percent on average across all subjects.

There's been a three per cent rise in H1 grades in Higher-Level Irish, with over 800 more students picking up top marks compared with last year.
In English the increase was 1.3 per cent, and in Maths there was a two per cent rise at higher level.
In Art, Economics, Accounting, Business and  Home Economics, the share of H1s at higher level has at least doubled -- while in Music, they rose from 4.3 to 13 per cent.
