Mandarin Chinese is among the new subjects being rolled out for Leaving Cert students from next September, with the first exams in 2022.

It is one of four languages being added to the curriculum, with next year's fifth years also getting the opportunity to study Lithuanian, Polish and Portuguese in school for the first time.

Lithuanian, Polish and Portuguese are already examined in the Leaving Cert as non-curricular subjects, but from September they will be on the curriculum.
