Delayed Leaving Cert results has negative knock on effects for Students and Parents
Our universities will do their utmost to deal with the late Leaving Cert results and ensure that first years are supported in as far as possible. However, as a number of universities resume teaching from September 5th, it is clear that first year admissions will be delayed, particularly those with second and third round CAO offers. First year students will be at a clear disadvantage on finding accommodation due to the delayed results. It is imperative that the Minister and government plan now for earlier Leaving Cert exams and results, starting in 2023, so that students and their families have sufficient time to make what are life-changing choices and to avoid unnecessary stress on students.
