We are very excited and looking forward to our Class of 2022’s Leaving Certificate Results being released this Friday 2nd of September and we want to wish them all the very best of luck. Please refer to the information below on Friday for any information & details you may need in the coming weeks.
  • This year’s results will not be released in paper form to the school.Students will have to login to the online portal at 10am on Friday morning to see their results.
  • We would like to invite students to drop into school on Friday between 11-12am to have tea and chats with their classmates and to celebrate their achievements. The Guidance Team will be on site during this time to discuss any queries or for anyone needing help with the portal. Again, we will not have a record of individual student results to distribute, but we will be able to assist students with queries on the portal.
If students have forgotten passwords to get into the portal it is now open in order for them to reset their passwords.
This portal is also very important for students who wish to make appeals or to view their scripts.
Please see info below on:
1. Access to data.
2. Viewing of scripts.
3. Applying to view
4. Viewing online & in school
5. The appeals process.
  1. Access to Data.
On Tuesday 6 September at 12 noon candidates will be able to access more detailed information about each of their examination results including the overall marks that they achieved in the examination; the individual marks in each components of a subject, and details of any adjustment to these marks. This data is intended to help candidates to understand how they performed in the examinations and may be of assistance to any candidates considering an appeal.
  1. Viewing of Scripts
The Viewing of Scripts process is a core part of the SEC’s examination appeals and quality assurance. It allows candidates to see how the marking scheme in each subject has been applied to their scripts and to make an informed decision as to whether or not to make an appeal.
  1. Applying to View
Applications to view Leaving Certificate examination scripts must be made by candidates through the Candidate Self Service Portal between5pm on Tuesday 6 Septemberand8pm on Wednesday 7 September. No late applications will be accepted.
There are two different processes this year for viewing of scripts depending on how the script was marked.
a) Viewing online through the Candidate Self Service Portal
b) Viewing in-person in schools
It is important to note that candidates may have to attend school to view some of their scripts and use the portal to access others.
  1. Viewing online through the Candidate Self Service Portal
With the expansion of online marking to the majority of subjects for the 2022 Leaving Certificate, most script viewing will be online through the Candidate Self Service Portal. The online viewing process is delivered through the Candidate Self Service Portal and involves candidates having timebound access to PDFs of the scripts. Online viewing in these subjects will be available from 9 am on Saturday 10 September to 12 pm on Sunday 11 September.
  1. Viewing in schools
There is still a need to provide candidates with in-person script viewing in schools for those subjects, or components of subjects, which were manually marked. Even in subjects which were marked online there are some exceptions which require scripts to be returned to schools for viewing.
The following material will be returned to schools for in person viewing:
• Examination scripts in subjects which were manually marked.
• Certain components of subjects which were marked online (e.g. the LCVP portfolio)
• Examination scripts in the Deferred Examination series will be returned for viewing to the school in which the candidate had been due to sit the main examinations in June. (These examinations were not marked online).
• Scripts in online marked subjects that were in atypical format such as Brailed, Enlarged or Modified scripts or scripts in audio format.
Viewing in Schools will take place on Saturday 10 September and candidates will be assigned to one of three viewing sessions as follows:
1. Session 1. 9 AM – 11 AM
2. Session 2. 12 PM – 2 PM
3. Session 3. 3 PM – 5 PM
  1. Appeals Process
The process for the appeal of an examination is a process whereby the script is sent to an appeals examinerfor re-marking.This examiner is different from the examiner who originally marked the work. In some subjects involving practical/project work it may be necessary for an appeal examiner to visit the school to re-mark work stored by the school. In the interests of equity and fairness re-marking on appeal is carried out in accordance with the marking scheme for that subject. This ensures that appeal examiners apply the same standards in re-marking as were applied to all candidates in the examination. The marking schemes in all examination subjects will be published prior to the Viewing of Scripts on the State Examinations Commission’s website.
Applications to appeal must be made through the Candidate Self Service Portal between9am Saturday 10 Septemberand12pm Monday 12 September. In order that the SEC can process the appeals as quickly as possible, the appeal application deadline will be strictly applied and late applications will not be accepted under any circumstances
