IUA welcomes clarity on revised plans for Leaving Certificate examinations

The Irish Universities Association (IUA) welcomes the announcement of the revised plans for holding this year’s Leaving Certificate examinations in late July/early August (subject to public health advice) and the clarity this brings for students, their families and their schools.

Our universities will now work with the CAO and other stakeholders to ensure that new university students can begin their studies as soon as possible after the publication of the 2020 Leaving Certificate results. This work and all planning for the 2020-21 academic year will continue to be guided by the latest public health advice.

We wish all of the students every success and we look forward to welcoming those who choose our universities as the next stage of their education in a brighter post-Covid crisis context.
