Minister for Education and Skills, Jan O’Sullivan, TD

Starting 5th year this September? Changes are on the way to college entry …

Minister for Education and Skills, Jan O’Sullivan, TD, has today launched the most significant reform of Leaving Certificate grades and CAO points in more than two decades.

The main changes are:

  • A new grading system for the Leaving Certificate – reducing the number of grades from the current 14 to 8
  • Proposals for a revised common points scale for entry into higher education
  • Broader undergraduate entry to high education programmes
  • An analysis of predictability in the Leaving Certificate
