6th Years of 2019/2020 Leaving Cert Results

6th Years of 2019/2020 Leaving Cert Results

Dear 6th Years of 2019/2020

Tomorrow will be a very unusual time for us as a school, normally we look forward to welcoming you into to the school to distribute Leaving Certificate results.

Tomorrow however you will receive them via the Calculated Grades Portal on which you registered to receive calculated grades.

We wish everyone the very best tomorrow and over the coming weeks and months as you make decisions about your future direction in life.

This has been a long journey for all of us over the past few months but you are an outstanding group of students and I have no doubt regardless of how the next few days go you will all achieve your dreams and aspirations in life.

I hope you will remember the fond times you have had in CBC and know that you have left a lasting legacy on our school. Do not forget to drop in every now and then and let us know how you are getting on and what you are doing.

Very few of us follow a straight highway through life and there will be many twists, turns, u-turns, forks in the road in which you will have to make a decision but that is the magic and beauty of life, it is all about the journey, enjoy your time over the next few years, cherish and embrace every opportunity that presents itself and throw yourself into the things that make you most happy.

Mr Mongey

In School Supports

The guidance team is available to meet in the school so just email Ms Joyce, Mr Flynn or Ms Hanley if you wish to discuss the options that will open up for you over the coming days, we will free them up from their normal duties over the coming days as the need arises so do not hesitate to make contact.

Unfortunately all visitors to the school are by appointment only and Ms Joyce, Mr Flynn and Ms Hanley will have to let the front office know what time you may be coming in.

Drop me an email also if you have any questions at all and we will do our best to address anything we can.

Appeals Process

Students unhappy with their Calculated Grades results will have access to an appeals process. The appeals process will be an administrative process and students may not appeal against the information provided on their behalf by the school as these have already been subjected to a school alignment process and oversight by the school principal.

Students may lodge an appeal through the student portal from 9.00 a.m. on Monday 14th September to 5.00 p.m. on Wednesday 16th September.

Stage1: Checks will be undertaken to ensure that the intended information was recorded correctly by the school and that the information was transferred correctly into the data collection system.

Stage 2: There will also be a review to ensure that the data was correctly received and processed in the national standardisation process conducted by the Department.

Data checks will include a check to ensure that the rank order of the class group for the subject and level taken has been preserved in the standardisation process and that students placed on the same school-estimated mark in the same subject and at the same level taken by the school are conferred with the same calculated mark conferred by the Department.

Stage 3: Students unhappy with the outcome of this process can seek a review by Independent Appeal Scrutineers.

All students will have the opportunity to sit the postponed Leaving Certificate Examinations which are scheduled to begin on 16th November subject to public health advice.
