The 2022 Leaving Certificate results are due for release to candidates through the Candidate Self-Service Portal
at 10 am on Friday 2 September.
You are aware that the date for the issue of the results this year is later than would be the case in a normal year; there were a number of reasons for this. There was a deferred sitting of the Leaving Certificate examinations in July for students unable to sit examinations in the main sitting in June due to serious accident, injury or illness; close family bereavement, or Covid-19. With increased numbers of candidates, there was a requirement for increased numbers of examiners and this was challenging this year. A further significant factor is that in announcing the arrangements for the 2022 Leaving Certificate examinations, a commitment was given by Government that the outcomes will, on aggregate, be no lower than the outcomes in 2021. This work is currently underway and giving effect to this commitment requires time for detailed analysis of the marking outcomes, implementation of any adjustment, and quality assurance.
The State Examinations Commission (SEC) are informing all concerned at this time about the various key dates that will be important to you in the coming weeks as they relate to the viewing of scripts and the appeals processes. You should take note of these important dates as the timelines will all be strictly applied.
