Leaving Cert results revealed today

For A total of 2387 students across Limerick city and county the wait was finally over today when the clock struck 9am and the results of the “biggest exam you will ever do” , the leaving cert , was published.

Although the general performance looked to be good this year, a high failure rate in maths is revealed in the results with more than ten percent of students failing the ordinary level paper.

John O'Halloran of the Tutorial College in the City said that he was delighted that eight of their students received the maximum of 600 points.

The students now must wait for the CAO points table to be released on Monday to see if they’ve been offered a place in the college of their choice.

It is estimated that more than 75% of the 54,000 students nationwide will secure a place on one of their top three Central Applications Office choices.A total of 5,500 students achieved at least one A1, with one student awarded A1's in nine subjects. He puts that achievement down to “Consistent Study”.

Results can still be got from the Website.
