Junior Certs receive their results

MORE than 61,000 Junior Cert students were celebrating today having received their results.

2017 marks the first year that English was examined under a new system. 

Rather than the old ‘A, B, C’ grade format, students weer awarded one of six grade descriptors, from ‘Distinction’ to ‘Not Graded’. 

The Minister for Education Richard Bruton congratulated all those who received their results.

Today you are seeing the well-deserved results of all the hours of hard work and dedication that have gone into preparing for your exams.”
“It is positive and encouraging to see the changes to the Junior Cycle coming to fruition. Students who received their results today are the first to benefit from this new broader assessment process.”

Changes to Junior Cycle subjects are being implemented on a phased basis with both grading systems appearing together until 2021 at which time the last of the revised Junior Cycle subjects will be examined.

Results will be available in schools today and online at www.examinations.ie
