Traditional Leaving Cert Exams Proposals to go to Cabinet today

Posted by SchoolDays Newshound, on 01/02/2022. Traditional Leaving Cert Exams Proposals to go to Cabinet todayTags: Parenting Teachers

The Minister for Education, Norma Foley, is expected to bring proposals to the Cabinet this morning which recommend against providing a hybrid examination option for this year's Leaving Certificate students. It is believed that what is being proposed is traditional written Leaving Cert exams with some additional elements of choice.

In particular it is believed that the Minister may be going to recommend more choice on the maths papers than usual.

A hybrid exam was available for the class of 2021 and in recent weeks a survey by the Irish Second-Level Students' Union found that 68% of Leaving Cert students want a hybrid State exam model this year. However, as more than a quarter of this years leaving certificate students did not sit the Junior Cxert, it is believed that the Department felt that there would not be sufficient data available to examiners this year to facilitate an accreditated grades approach similar to last year.
