New Leaving Certificate Grading Scale and Revised Points Scale for 2017

New Leaving Certificate Grading Scale and Revised Points Scale for 2017

The Institutes of Technology and the Universities have been working in partnership with the Department of Education and Skills to bring about progressive and incremental enhancements of the transition from second to third level.  The central focus of this work has been to agree reforms of Leaving Certificate assessment and grading and the admissions processes to higher education, in order to mitigate some of the undesirable effects of the so-called ‘points system’.  A summary of the agreed changes is available here.
