Accessing Results – Candidates
Leaving Certificate, Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme and Leaving Certificate Applied candidates will have access to their provisional Leaving Certificate results on the Candidate Self Service Portal at 10 am on Friday 2 September. Candidates can view their results and will also be able to print a Statement of Provisional Results.
The school no longer receives these statement of results.
Please download/print/save this statement from the portal. You will need it in the future. Remember the school will no longer have copies of these. Your only place to access it is from the Portal used during the examination process.
On Tuesday 6 September at 12 noon candidates will be able to access more detailed information about each of their examination results including the overall marks that they achieved in the examination; the individual marks in each components of a subject, and details of any adjustment to these marks. This data is intended to help candidates to understand how they performed in the examinations and may be of assistance to any candidates considering an appeal.
Viewing of Scripts
The Viewing of Scripts process is a core part of the SEC’s examination appeals and quality assurance. It allows candidates to see how the marking scheme in each subject has been applied to their scripts and to make an informed decision as to whether or not to make an appeal.
Applying to View
Applications to view Leaving Certificate examination scripts must be made by candidates through the Candidate Self Service Portal between 5pm on Tuesday 6 September and 8pm on Wednesday 7 September.
Leaving Certificate Applied applications must be made by email.
Candidates will be provided with an LCA Viewing Application Form on the Candidate Self Service Portal which should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.The same application timeline and all applications must be made before 8pm on Wednesday 7 September.
There are two different processes this year for viewing of scripts depending on how the script was marked.
a) Viewing online through the Candidate Self Service Portal
b) Viewing in-person in schools
It is important to note that candidates may have to attend school to view some of their scripts and use the portal to access others
Viewing online through the Candidate Self Service Portal
With the expansion of online marking to the majority of subjects for the 2022 Leaving Certificate, most script viewing will be online through the Candidate Self Service Portal. The online viewing process is delivered through the Candidate Self Service Portal and involves candidates having timebound access to PDFs of the scripts. Online viewing in these subjects will be available from 9 am on Saturday 10 September to 12 pm on Sunday 11 September.
Viewing in schools
There is still a need to provide candidates with in-person script viewing in schools for those subjects, or components of subjects, which were manually marked. Even in subjects which were marked online there are some exceptions which require scripts to be returned to schools for viewing.
The following material will be returned to schools for in person viewing;
• Examination scripts in subjects which were manually marked • Certain components of subjects which were marked online (e.g. the LCVP portfolio)
• Examination scripts in the Deferred Examination series will be returned for viewing to the school in which the candidate had been due to sit the main examinations in June. (These examinations were not marked online).
• Scripts in online marked subjects that were in atypical format such as Brailed, Enlarged or Modified scripts or scripts in audio format.
Viewing in Schools will take place on Saturday 10 September and candidates will be assigned to one of three viewing sessions as follows; 1. Session 1. 9 AM – 11 AM 2. Session 2. 12 PM – 2 PM 3. Session 3. 3 PM – 5 PM
The process for the appeal of an examination is a process whereby the script is sent to an appeals examiner for re-marking. This examiner is different from the examiner who originally marked the work. In some subjects involving practical/project work it may be necessary for an appeal examiner to visit the school to re-mark work stored by the school. In the interests of equity and fairness remarking on appeal is carried out in accordance with the marking scheme for that subject. This ensures that appeal examiners apply the same standards in re-marking as were applied to all candidates in the examination. The marking schemes in all examination subjects will be published prior to the Viewing of Scripts on the State Examinations Commission’s website.
Applications to appeal must be made through the Candidate Self Service Portal between 9am Saturday 10 September and 12pm Monday 12 September. In order that the SEC can process the appeals as quickly as possible, the appeal application deadline will be strictly applied and late applications will not be accepted under any circumstances
