Leaving Cert exams to begin at end of July: Minister
The Leaving Cert exams will take place this Summer, starting on Wednesday, July 29.
The date was confirmed by Education Minister Joe McHugh in the Dáil last night.
He said a full schedule for the exams will be released in the first week of June.
The news has been welcomed by teachers’ unions.
However, Teachers Union of Ireland (TUI) President Seamus Lahart warned the new exam timetable will also impact the start date for the new college year and people will have to prepare to work around that.
