Leaving cert students will be arriving at schools around the county from 9am this morning.
A new grading system’s being applied to Leaving Cert students in Wicklow and around the country who are getting their results later this morning.
The change is in a bid to dampen down the points race for college – and will see a reduction from 14 to 8 grades.
Students are being warned not to panic, as calculation apps are available, and the changes in points for college courses won’t be seen until next Monday when CAO offers are made.
There’s been a rise in the number of people taking higher level rates across almost all subjects this year, and fewer students are failing.
