Leaving Cert: The Minister for Education and Skills has announced that Leaving Certificate 2020 is postponed and students are being offered a system of Calculated Grades, with State certification, along with the option of sitting exams at a later date. Both teaching unions have agreed to cooperate. All students will be automatically registered for the Calculated Grades system, but will be offered the opportunity to opt out of this process should they prefer to sit the exams.
