ALMOST 56,000 STUDENTS will receive their Leaving Certificate exam results today.

For thousands of students the results will mean entry to third level courses around the country; for others, it will mean entry into a tough economy or even emigrating.

Some argue that Leaving Cert results are crucial for young people in order to follow their chosen career path while others say that results don’t matter – or at least, only in the short term.

What do you think? Do Leaving Cert results affect your future?


Poll Results:

Yes, they're important, but only in the short-term (1696)
No, they don't matter. (1178)
Yes, they have a big effect (575)
