Well, it’s that time of year again.

Some 56,595 students are sitting their first Leaving Certificate paper today, while 60,652 students are sitting the Junior Certificate.

The Junior Cert exams run until Thursday June 23rd, while the Leaving finishes up on Friday June 24th.

The results of the Leaving Cert will be out on Wednesday August 17th, and will be available online from 12 noon that day.

Junior Cert results will be issued in mid-September.

But enough with the figures – everybody, and we mean everybody, is rooting for the students and wishing them the best of luck!

And of course, urging them to keep it calm and just do their best...
