SHOULD THE LEAVING Cert exams take place as normal this summer?

The Minister for Education Norma Foley has told teachers’ unions that it is her intention to hold the ‘established’ Leaving Cert exams as normal this summer. Last year, a system of Calculated Grades replaced the Leaving Cert, but caused some controversy.

Concerns were raised that it would be risky to have Leaving Cert students gather for exams during the Covid-19 pandemic – but that alternatives to the written exams weren’t as fair or anonymous.

We’re asking you today: Should the Leaving Cert go ahead as normal this year?


Poll Results:

No, do the Calculated Grades again (8137)
Yes (7885)
No, and don't do Calculated Grades either (1810)
I really don't know (1019)
