Leaving Cert Self Service Portal
This year all Leaving Cert students must register with the State Examinations Commission to allow then to request viewing of scripts and appeals in August. We have distributed a guide and a PIN number to all of those students who were in school today. The SEC strongly recommends that the registration process is completed as soon as possible. If the student does not register they will NOT be able to access view or appeal scripts. Would students who have not yet collected their PIN number and guide please call in to do so.

Online Marking- State Exams
Please see below information about Online Marking from the State Exams Commission. ‘We have received a number of requests for clarification as to what Online Marking means for candidates. Our basic message remains the same, which is, there is very little change for candidates as a result of their examinations being marked online. We are taking this opportunity to provide some further clarification specifically for the attention of candidates and their parents/guardians. This is available https://www.examinations.ie/?l=en&mc=ex&sc=omd PIN letters for our new Candidate Self-Service Portal are available in the school.’ Please collect these PIN letters and related information from the school
