The anxious wait is over for the more than 1,400 Clare students who sat their Leaving Cert and Leaving Cert Applied exams in June. Results of the State Exams were released from schools this morning and are available online and by phone from midday today (Wednesday).
In Clare 661 females and 713 males sat the Leaving Cert in the county while 30 females and 35 females completed the Leaving Cert Applied.
Minister for Education and Skills, Jan O’Sullivan, TD, today congratulated the 56,990 Leaving Certificate students who are receiving their results.
“Completing secondary school and the Leaving Certificate is a milestone in many people’s lives. Every student should be proud of their achievement. Today is the culmination of much hard work and sacrifice and I hope that the effort students made is reflected in their results,” she said.
“Students now have the opportunity to choose which path they want to take next. There are a wide range of opportunities available in higher education, further education and in many other fields. It is an exciting time for young people and I would urge them to consider their options carefully and give 100% to whatever path they choose to follow next,” Minister O’Sullivan continued.
A special helpline opened at 10am to support the more than 57,000 Leaving Cert students nationwide and their families. Exam Helpline 2014 is provided by the National Parents’ Council Post Primary (NPCpp) and is a freephone number.
