There was a largely positive reception to the first day of State exams this afternoon, with Leaving Certificate English Paper I now out of the way.

Local students were for the most part in good form as they left the county’s exam halls at lunchtime. Just over 2,100 students in Kilkenny are taking their State exams this year.

All written examination papers taken by candidates in this year’s examinations will be published on the website on the evening that the examination is completed.

Leaving Cert results will be issued on Wednesday, August 16 and the online results service will be available from noon on that day for Leaving Cert candidates. Junior Certificate/Cycle results will be issued in mid-September.

Guidance counsellors and online supports are available for students.
