Leaving Certificate Results 2020

 Wed, 2nd Sep, 2020

Dear LC 2020 Students,

Your LC Calculated Grades results will be available on 7 September at 9 a.m. To receive your Calculated Grades, you should again login to the Calculated Grades Student Portal. A “Before you Begin Guide” will be available on the Student Portal home page to guide you through access your results and printing a statement of those results. You will be able to view your Calculated Grade results online. You can download and print your ‘Statement of Provisional Results of Calculated Grades for Leaving Certificate 2020’. This is the only way to receive a hard copy of your Calculated Grades as, while schools will be provided with details of your results electronically, formal Statements of Provisional Results will not be issued to schools this year.
