Around 17% of Leaving Cert grades calculated by school to be reduced

Leaving Certs results will be adjusted for some

While this year’s calculated grades process is not yet complete, the department said the trends show that the national standardisation has resulted in a low number of grades being reduced, in the vast majority of cases by just one grade.

In a move that will be welcomed by disadvantaged schools, the department has not relied on a school’s previous performance in its national standardisation process. This decision was approved by Cabinet today.
