Further adjustments to Leaving Cert exams should be considered
The ASTI is continuing to engage with the Department of Education regarding arrangements for this year’s Leaving Certificate examinations.
The ASTI is committed to the operation of stand-alone 2022 Leaving Certificate examination arrangements in order to take into account the unique situation of this year’s Leaving Certificate students. Every feasible adjustment to the written exams should be considered to give students as much confidence as possible as they continue their preparations.
Second-level teachers are currently implementing curricular revisions for the Leaving Certificate 2022. In addition, once-off arrangements for oral exams in Irish and modern foreign languages and the music practical exam are being introduced.
The ASTI is committed to the preservation of Ireland’s high quality, fair and independent State Exams system. This system helps to ensure that all students can expect fairness and transparency in relation to their Leaving Certificate.
