This year’s results comprise the results of the examinations and the
Accredited Grades. The provisional statements of results and the final certificates will not distinguish examination results from Accredited Grades. The Leaving Certificate results from any one year are considered equivalent to the results from any other year and the 2021 Leaving Certificate results will have equal standing.

Students received further information about their results on the Candidate Self Service Portal (CSSP) from 5 pm today, Tuesday 5th September. The purpose of providing students with further information about their results is to assist them if they are considering an appeal.

The SEC want to provide students  with this information so that you are not required to make a request for it. The SEC is also committed to ensuring that they have a clear understanding of this further information and of how grades were awarded and why particular grades were awarded.
