Leaving Certificate Results

The following email regarding the Leaving Certificate Results and Appeals Process is from the State Examinations Commission. Please read it carefully.

Dear Candidate, 

The 2022 Leaving Certificate results are due for release to candidates through the Candidate Self-Service Portal at 10 am on Friday 2 September.  You are aware that the date for the issue of the results this year is later than would be the case in a normal year; there were a number of reasons for this. There was a deferred sitting of the Leaving Certificate examinations in July for students unable to sit examinations in the main sitting in June due to serious accident, injury or illness; close family bereavement, or Covid-19.  With increased numbers of candidates, there was a requirement for increased numbers of examiners and this was challenging this year.  A further significant factor is that in announcing the arrangements for the 2022 Leaving Certificate examinations, a commitment was given by Government that the outcomes will, on aggregate, be no lower than the outcomes in 2021.  This work is currently underway and giving effect to this commitment requires time for detailed analysis of the marking outcomes, implementation of any adjustment, and quality assurance. 

We are contacting you at this time to update you on a number of key dates that will be important to you in the coming weeks as they relate to the viewing of scripts and the appeals processes.  You should take note of these important dates as the timelines will all be strictly applied.

The timelines this year for candidates to apply to view scripts and to lodge their appeal applications are very short and the deadlines will be strictly applied.  This is essential to ensure that the remaining stages of the appeal process can be completed as quickly as possible.  The SEC will not accept late applications.  Until such time as the number of appeals is known, it is not possible to commit to a specific timeframe for the issue of the appeal results.  Every effort will be made to process appeals as quickly as possible. Candidates will be notified of this date as soon as possible.  

The State Examinations Commission (SEC) is committed to providing clear and timely information to candidates about the examinations.  You will receive a detailed Candidate Information Guide to Results & Appeals which will be emailed to all candidates and published on the SEC’s website in advance of the issue of results on Friday, 2 September.  Detailed subject by subject information will be provided in the Candidate Information Guide to your Results by Subject which will be published on https://www.examinations.ie on Monday 5 September to facilitate those who intend to access their marks including their individual component marks.  

You will find information about the services provided by the SEC on our website. If you need to contact us, the email address for candidate enquiries is candidateportal@examinations.ie  and our phone number is 090-6442702.  At the time of the issue of the results a Candidate Helpline will be available. Details of this will be provided to you.   

Yours faithfully
