Your Essential Guide to the Leaving Cert Results

Don't miss our special LC & CAO supplements in the Irish Independent

For more than 58,000 students the next couple of days are amongst the most important for their lives.

As they await their Leaving Cert results, in Wednesday’s Irish Independent we give parents and students everything needed to get through the days ahead.

The first of three special Leaving Cert and CAO supplements, this guide will be packed with essential information and advice regarding rechecks, second-chance maths exams, repeating the Leaving Cert and options both inside and outside the CAO, such as further education and the growing number of apprenticeship opportunities.

Plus we'll have full details of our free exam helpline and live blog where guidance counsellors will be on hand to answer your questions.

Our live blog will be available here.


Only in Wednesday’s Irish Independent.
