186. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the provisions in place for leaving certificate students that may contract Covid-19 before or during the expected exam period; and if a predicted points system is being considered. [5782/20]
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.
