Leaving Cert and Junior Cycle Exams postponed
The Leaving Cert written examinations are postponed until late July/August while the Junior Cycle exams are replaced with a school based assessment early in the new school year . Schools will remain closed until further notice.

The measures were announced by the Minister for Education and Skills on Friday as part of measures to respond to the Coronavirus.

The new leaving cert timetable will be confirmed in early June .
Practical examinations for Leaving Certificate students which were due to have been held in May are now deferred. They will be rescheduled for late July/early August .   

The final arrangements for the exams, the exam centres, social distancing and other measures will all be determined by the State Examinations Commission (SEC) on foot of public health advice in June . 

As part of the changes to the Junior Cycle exams, discussions will take place with teacher unions and school management to allow these examinations through Classroom Based Assessments, Assessment Tasks and project work to be completed as school based assessments early in the next school year.  


The admissions process to higher education courses for leaving cert students managed by the Central Applications Office (CAO) will operate as closely as possible to the usual timeframe but is likely to be delayed as a result of the new measures.

More than 61,000 students were expected to sit the Leaving Certificate or Leaving Certificate Applied this year . 
Schools were closed on public health grounds on 12th March . Students have lost 15 classroom instruction days to date .

i'd like to see all state Exams move to a continuous assessment Model . Will be interesting to see what way they do the Junior cert in the new school year .

I remember when I was doing the leaving cert, you cram everything into your brain for Two weeks then after its over you let most of the information go.

a continuous assessment model would ensure the Learning stays inside your brain as its a gradual process and makes learning more fun . Just my opinion . Less stress for students also
^
I wonder would it make more sense for students to repeat the year again after all the class time they are missing.
^
gav , i dont it would go down well with students though .
^
what they want and whats good for them are two different things brendan , i'm only thinking of them and their best interests with regards to their education . too much school time has been lost this year already . it would make more sense for everyone to repeat the year again

I'd appeal to traditional republicans and socialists to examine carefully what these NGOs represent and the Ireland they want before signing up . I'd appeal to all decent people to really think carefully before allowing yourself to be used as a vessel for these movements. They talk about "Hate and Division" but are they not the driving force behind this hate and division because they divide society based on social groups . everyone is divided into groups based on their soc
