Junior Cycle Results Issue Date Confirmed for Friday 4th October
The State Examinations Commission notified schools when the Leaving Certificate Appeals time-frame was reconfigured for the 2019 examinations that there would be an impact on the issue date for the Junior Cycle results. In the SEC circular letter which accompanied the 2019 examination timetables which issued to all second level schools in February last the SEC advised schools that “As a result of the need to priorities activities associated with the Leaving Certificate appeals, the results of the 2019 Junior Cycle examinations are due for issue to schools in late September.”
The immediate priority of the SEC is to achieve the deadline of week ending 20th September it has set for issuing the results of the Leaving Certificate appeals, which is three weeks earlier this year than in previous years.
The SEC is planning to conclude the resulting processes for Junior Cycle in late September. The change to the issue date this year has presented the opportunity to change the day of issue from the traditional Wednesday to a Friday issue day. This has been requested of SEC from time to time and we have had agreement to this change of day from all of the stakeholders.
The SEC is in the process of notifying schools of the definitive date for issue of the 2019 Junior Cycle examinations results which will be Friday 4th October, when results will be in schools and published online.
