How to access your results and what will you be able to view

The results this year are expected to issue on Friday 3 September from 10am onwards through the Candidate Self Service Portal

The Leaving Certificate Candidate Self Service Portal (CSSP) is a service provided by the State Examinations Commission (SEC) and the Department of Education for 6th year candidates entered for the 2021 Leaving Certificate. The CSSP is a one-stop-shop for a range on online services to candidates. By now you have created an account on the portal. You need to keep your account details safe so that you can access your results on 3 September.

On 3rd September when students first access the results, candidates who did the examination and opted to receive Accredited Grades will be credited with the better of the two results. Students will not know on this date whether the results achieved is from the examination or the Accredited Grade.

A couple of days later on 7th September, 5pm, the Leaving Certificate Candidate Portal will re-open and candidates will have access to more detailed information about both sets of results. For candidates who took only the certificate examinations in any subjects, they will be able to see the marks awarded in the written examination for those subjects and the marks awarded in any components.

For candidates who opted only for Accredited Grades in any subjects, the estimated percentage marks submitted by their school, the accredited mark following the process of standardisation and the SEC Accredited Grades will be available for those subjects.

Candidates who opted for both examinations and accredited grades in any subjects will receive information in respect of both sets of results for those subjects.

This information will aid candidates who may wish to review their scripts or be considering an appeal of a result in a subject. View the Appeals Process here
