According to the Irish Independent, a record number of Leaving Certificate students are planning to sit higher-level maths in the June exams.

Following the introduction of 25 CAO bonus points for achieving a minimum D3 grade, entries for the "honours" paper have risen for the third year in a row with 17,181 students indicating their intention to take higher level this year. This figure is up 70pc on this time in 2011. This means that almost one in three of all Leaving Cert candidates are considering doing "honours" this year.

The figures in the Independent which are supplied by the State Examinations Commission (SEC), are provisional and subject to change right up to the commencement of the examinations.

Additional resources continue to come on stream for leaving cert maths students with the Taoiseach, Enda Kenny TD, last week launching a free, interactive online maths resource for students and teachers in Ireland on the Alison website
