Leaving Certificate and Junior Cycle Information.

Leaving Certificate Candidate Self Service Portal 2019 

We are posting candidates their individualised letter from the State Examination Commission this week. This letter details:

  • the candidate’s Examination Number and personal PIN (required to complete the initial registration for the SEC’s new Candidate Self Service Portal to access results, viewing and appeal services).
  • confirmation of the subjects, levels and paper versions for which they are entered.

This service is being provided to Leaving Certificate candidates only. Details of the arrangements for the release of the Junior Cycle results, including PIN letters for candidates, will issue in September 2019.

We will also provide each candidate with a copy of the information leaflet about the Candidate Self Service Portal.

Please note: If a candidate does not register on the portal they will NOT be able to access the range of online services available on the portal. The application to view scripts; the viewing of scripts marked online, the appeal application and the appeal results services are being provided exclusively on-line this year.

Regulations for LC and JC can be viewed here.

Ms Dargan’s presentation on the regulations in State Exams can be downloaded as a Powerpoint here.

Online Marking for Junior Cycle: Guidelines and advice for candidates about the implications of English, French, Science and Business Studies being marked online here.
