Students will be able to access the subject percentage marks that they were awarded in the Leaving Certificate by the Calculated Grades process, as well as the estimated percentage marks provided by their school, from this morning.
Students received their calculated grades last week with CAO offers being issued last Friday, however, until now they were not able to see the estimated percentage marks awarded by their schools.
The Calculated Grades Student Portal reopens this morning at 9am and students who are unhappy with the calculated grades they have received in the Leaving Certificate will also be able to appeal these from today.
The Department of Education says “the appeals process is a process review focused on looking for errors in the transmission and processing of student data through the process.”
As part of this process, it says checks will be undertaken on the forms completed by the school and that the information was transferred correctly from the forms to the data collection system There will also be a review to ensure that the data was correctly received and processed through the national standardisation process conducted by the Department.
It says students will not be able to appeal against the information provided on their behalf by the school as these have already been subjected to an in-school alignment process and oversight by the school principal.
Students have until 5pm on 16 September to submit an appeal.
