3,400 students across NW to get Leaving Cert results today

Almost 3,400 students across the north west are set to receive their Leaving Certificate results today – a day earlier than previous years.

Donegal has the highest number of students receiving their results in the region after just over 2,100 students took the exam in June.

Just over 800 students sat the exam in Sligo and 400 in Leitrim – the lowest number in the country.

Students will receive their first-round offers from the CAO on Thursday, August 15th – five days earlier than previous years.

Career guidance counsellor at St Mary’s College in Ballisodare Cllr Marie Casserly has this advice for students today.
