Leaving Cert Survey Results:

We asked you what you thought about the Leaving Cert taking place this summer. Almost 20,000 of you responded to the Labour Party survey, with students, teachers and parents all having their say.

The most striking result is that a whopping 82% of respondents do not have confidence the traditional written examination will take place this summer.

It’s clear, students, teachers and parents want an alternative to the traditional Leaving Cert and the Government must make a decision now to stop the agony of uncertainty that is causing untold stress for tens of thousands of young people.

Currently, 94.8% of you do not feel listened to in relation to this important matter. We in the Labour Party are listening and will be bringing the results of this survey to the Minister for Education.
