DES Publishes Guidance for Schools on Calculated Grades

Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh TD has today (21 May 2020) announced the publication of detailed guidance on the new system of Calculated Grades for this year’s Leaving Certificate.

The system of Calculated Grades is being offered to all 2020 Leaving Certificate candidates. Students will have the opportunity to appeal their results.

Students can also opt to sit the Leaving Certificate exams when they are held, which will be when public health advice permits.

The timing of the results of the Calculated Grades process will run as close as possible to the usual results system.

As part of the process of Calculated Grades, Leaving Certificate students will have access to an online portal from early next week where they will be required to confirm the subject level at which they initially entered for the examinations or to change to a lower level.
