More than 60,000 students are receiving their Leaving Cert results today.
Grades are up by an average of 2.4 percentage points compared to last year. However the increase is greater across many higher level subjects.
This is likely to fuel a rise in points for many college courses when CAO offers are made next Tuesday.
…These increases come on top of 2020 results that were themselves significantly inflated compared to previous years, with a 4.4 percentage average rise recorded last year.
