67,130 Junior Cycle examination candidates will receive their results at 4pm today.
This year marks a full return to externally delivered Junior Cycle examinations for all candidates, for the first time since 2019.
It is also the first full year of examinations in the reformed Junior Cycle.
Minister for Education of Ireland, Norma Foley congratulated over 67,000 students receiving their results.
“Throughout your school life, each of you will have learned so much and will have developed a myriad of talents, skills and ambitions that will pave the way as you embark on the next stage of your education journey.
“I want to congratulate each and every one of you again on reaching this major milestone in your life and best wishes for your next steps.
“To your parents and families, your school communities and teachers, I want to send my heartfelt thanks.
“I know what it is like to support students through state examinations and I know your commitment and support has helped these students to reach this point today.
“Thanks are also due to the State Examinations Commission and all those involved in completing the examination process,” she said.
Results will be issued in schools today and candidates who are unable to attend school can also access their results online through www.examinations.ie from 4pm.
A unique PIN and their examination number have been issued to schools for each candidate already, to enable them access online results.
