There’s also been a large increase in ordinary level maths grades. Students can collect their results from their schools, or online from noon on examinations.ie.
The Education Minister says the rising failure rate for Higher Level Maths is not out of line with other Leaving Cert subjects.

58,000 students are receiving their exam results today – with one student earning 9 A1s – and eight securing 8 A1s.
