Only 18 Leaving Cert Students Have Had Their Marks Upgraded Following An Appeals Process

The process saw over 12,000 pupils' grades reviewed

11 of those students were awarded a higher grade after appealing their calculated result, while 7 were brought up following quality assurance checks.

The Department of Education says over 33 thousand individual subject records were reviewed as part of the appeals process.

It says the low number of grade changes reflects the professionalism with which schools approached the calculated grading system.
