One student has secured an incredible 9 A1 grades in the Leaving Certificate this year, and 13 students have received eight A1 grades.
Some 57,000 leaving certificate students are to receive their Leaving Cert results today.
Record numbers of Leaving Certificate candidates who pushed themselves to take ‘honours’ maths have been rewarded in today’s results.
An unprecedented 14,326 students sat the higher-level exam, almost double the number who took it before the 25-point incentive for a minimum grade D was rolled out in 2012.
And the gamble paid off for the 96pc of those candidates who achieved at least a D grade.
