Leaving Cert online registration to take place over two days
Minister for Education Joe McHugh stated “The important message for Leaving Certificate students is that they must now register … to ensure that they can receive their Leaving Certificate Calculated Grades. It is also essential that students confirm their levels at this time so that schools can complete the task of providing information for each student about their expected level of performance in each subject.”
Speaking on the importance of registering he said “Please don’t leave it until the last minute. This is a tight timeframe. We need every student to register so that the new system can operate smoothly. Every school has been sent information on the gov.ie/leavingcertificate portal and how to register, and will be asked to circulate this to students and to parents and guardians.”
