Leaving Cert Timetable extended by 2 days

Posted by Schooldays Newshound, on 20/12/2018. Leaving Cert Timetable extended by 2 daysTags: Parenting Teachers

The Leaving Cert written exam timetable has been extended by two days for 2019. The exams start as usual on Wednesday after the June Bank Holiday - Wednesday 5th June but now extend into a fourth week with the two extra days beng Monday 24 June and Tuesday June 25th with seven exam subjects being held over those two days.

According to the Examinations Commission, " For reasons of candidate wellbeing, the 2019 Leaving Certificate written examination timetable has been extended beyond the traditional 13 day window. The new extended timetable has been designed to alleviate pressure on candidates by eliminating subject clashes as much as possible. There has been a very a particular focus on ensuring that there is only a minimal chance that a candidate will have to take three examinations on one day. However, not all clashes have been eliminated and there is still a possibility that some candidates, because of their particular subject choices, may have to sit three examinations in one day in 2019 or in a future year. "
