Big Changes To The Leaving Cert Appeals Process


Share this article


A faster Leaving Cert appeals process has been announced by the State Examinations Commission.

Next year's results of the Leaving Certificate will be issued a day early - on Tuesday the 13th of August while CAO Round 1 offers will be given to students by Friday 16th of August.

The results of appeals will be released 3 weeks earlier than the normal timeframe.

In most cases those who are successful in securing their preferred course following a points upgrade will be able to start in the current academic year.

Student supports will also be put in place in higher education institutions to ensure that students starting late are not disadvantaged.

The changes come on the back of Rebecca Carter's case against the State Examination Commission.

The 19 year old had challenged the Commission on the basis that the system was unfair as she wouldn't be able to start her course in time.
