The hashtag "LeavingCertResults" has been trending since early this morning on Twitter, with everyone from Irish celebrities to those who in the past "missed out" in the points race, tweeting their advice to this year's Leaving Cert students.
"Well done to the students that aren't naturally gifted in school but still put in a huge effort," said one Twitter user.
"Your Leaving Cert Results do not define you," said another.
While TV presenter Maia Dunphy said: "The Leaving Cert Results don't matter in the long term as much as they feel they do today."
UCD Students Union also attempted to placate any disappointed Leaving Cert students today, suggesting that they could enrol in an elective module in "Twerking".
"Anyone get the points for Twerking for Beginners? UCD CAO applicants only."
"The syllabus includes both historical and theoretical context of booty shaking in its practical application," the post, tweeted by the Student's Union said.
