Leaving Certificate

The Leaving Certificate (Established) is a two-year programme that aims to provide learners with a broad, balanced education while also offering them a chance to specialise towards particular higher education and career options.

In general, students take five or more subjects for examination, one of which must be Irish. Subjects are normally studied at either Ordinary or Higher Level.
