A total of 1,141 students in Kilkenny will receive their Junior Certificate results.
Students can also access their results through the on-line examination results service on www.examinations.ie from 4pm.
As always, the ever-popular No Name Club disco will play a role in the celebration of the results for many local teens. The disco takes place at the Hub, and will be a strictly alcohol=free and drug-free event.
Earlier this week, Drinkaware and Alcohol Action Ireland issued a statement advising parents that alcohol should have no role to play in the celebrations.
The overall numbers sitting the examination has increased by 1.2% on last year. The proportion of candidates who are re-entrants to education has decreased slightly to
1.2% of the cohort.
Applications for review of Junior Certificate examination results, which must be made through the candidate’s school, should be received by the State Examinations Commission no later than 5pm on Friday, September 30. The fee for this service is €32 per subject, which will be refunded in the event that a result is upgraded.
Applications are accepted only from a school authority which must confirm that the result obtained is at variance with the result expected.
The official marking schemes for all subjects will be published on the SEC website, www.examinations.ie, in the coming days.
The very best of luck to all students receiving results today.
