While last week's announcement that the Leaving Cert exams were to be cancelled brought an end to weeks of uncertainty for most students, for some the wait for answers continues.

Chloe Bates (23) was due to sit her Maths and Irish Leaving Cert exams as a mature student this summer. Her goal is a place on a Masters course in Primary Education at Hibernia College next April.

However, unlike the vast majority of teenage students, Chloe is ineligible for predictive grading. And so she needs to sit her exams, and she needs to sit them soon.
