The results of the Leaving Certificate appeals are in:
There were a total of 1,822 upgrades and just 5 downgrades.
5,660 candidates had sought a recheck against 9,089 individual grades. It is likely to result in new college offers now being issued to a few hundred candidates. Such students are entitled to take up those places, but colleges will sometimes ask them to defer.
Any changes in grades are notified to the CAO and it will issue the new offers in the coming days.
The SEC also said last night that in light of the “uncertain postal situation” it has arranged for the results of the appeals to arrive in schools today by courier. It has also made the online results service, showing the appeals outcomes, available from the earlier time of 9am today.
Candidates who are dissatisfied with the outcome of their appeals have recourse to the Independent Appeals Scrutineers.
Below is a table which summarises the results of the appeals process.
