I propose to take Questions Nos. 165 and 186 together.

As I announced on May 8th, the Leaving Certificate 2020 examinations have been postponed. Students will now be offered the option of availing of a Leaving Certificate based on calculated grades. They will also have the opportunity to sit the exams at a later date when it is safe to do so.
