Online Learning

Well done to all students on the excellent work so far. You have shown great commitment and resilience. At this stage you are all familiar with the delivery of classes and feedback online. If you have any difficulty, please contact us here in the school. We have been able to provide a device for a number of students- please contact the school if you need help in this regard.

Due to the prolonged period of school closure the Mock Exams will no longer take place. The school will reimburse all money paid.

State Exams 2021 – What we know so far

Leaving Cert

  • Students will have the option of whether to sit the exam, receive SEC (State Exams Commission) Accredited Grades, or both, on a subject by subject basis
  • Students who opt for both will have their better grades reflected in their results
  • Students will be required to register on the student portal; confirm their subject and level entry; opt for the examinations and /or receive SEC Accredited Grade. The portal is expected to open on the week of the 8thMarch
  • There will be no fees payable for exams or SEC Accredited Grades
  • Timetables are available on SEC website
  • Oral exams will take place in schools during Easter
  • Coursework will proceed in subjects where it forms part of the exam. Additional time will be provided and completion dates will be issued over the coming days.
  • As part of the process schools will provide the SEC with school-estimated marks in all subjects to all students. These marks will be provided following an in-school alignment process and approval
  • A national standardisation process will take place. This process will not use historical school by school data on past performance in Leaving Cert. Data on the Junior Cycle performance of the Leaving Cert class of 2021, recent national Leaving Cert results data and the national distribution of results may form part of the process.

Junior Cycle 2021

  • Junior Cycle examinations will not run in 2021
  • Students in PDLS will receive results based on an in-school exam and continuous assessment
  • It is critical that students continue to engage online to give the best chance to achieve
