‘This year’s Leaving Cert students have received the best results on record, with average grade inflation of 4.4% after the calculated grading system was used.

Liz Daly, whose daughter took a year out after her Leaving Cert and is now applying for college, is worried that she may not get the course she wants. She is looking for logic and fairness to be applied to cases like her daughter’s.
