Students are calling for clarity around the Leaving Cert exams

Leaving Cert students are set to protest in Waterford this afternoon calling for clarity on the 2022 exam format.

Students will also gather in Wexford, Carlow, and Dublin to protest against a return to the traditional leaving certificate format.

A detailed consultation between representative bodies and the Department of Education will take place tomorrow (Thursday 20) with a decision expected by the end of the week.

The Second Level Student Union hope today's demonstrations will highlight the need for clarity around the exams with the hopes that students will be given the choice between predicted grades and written exams.
