Wicklow Students Face Traditional Leaving Cert Exams This Year

The Government has agreed to hold the traditional Leaving Cert exams this year without a hybrid grading option.

Ministers decided not to offer accredited grades again this year, in part due to one in four students having not done a Junior Cert.

More choice and fewer questions.

That's what Education Minister Norma Foley says this year's Leaving Cert will look like.

Full details of exam changes will be given to schools in the county next week.

The Minister also confirmed the Junior Cert will run this year for the first time since 2019.
