2021 Junior & Leaving Cert Exam Adjustments: What You Need to Know

Banner of 2021 Junior & Leaving Cert Exam Adjustments: What You Need to Know

The Junior and Leaving Cert Exams 2021 will be very different from most other years. Because of the pandemic, students haven't had the same opportunities as previous JC and LC students to attend school and get a full, in-person education. 

In response to this, the Department of Education has devised a number of adjustments which will be implemented on this years' exam papers for Junior Cert & Leaving Cert. The changes are designed to give students more choice & an equal chance to do well in the exam despite having missed a certain amount of class-time.


You can find out all you need to know by downloading the booklet released by the Department of Education here, or visit https://assets.gov.ie/85054/e0afa83e-e701-40d2-8dfe-8baba98a01ca.pdf

The booklet outlines the adjustments made in each subject, so be sure to read through it to find your specific subjects, and if you have any questions we recommend reaching out to your teacher for clarification.

We hope this helps !
