Over 60,000 students who sat the Junior Certificate examination in Ireland this year received their results last Wednesday.
2,115 of those students were from Louth with 1047 females and 1068 males sitting the state exams.
All students did incredibly well and we are sure to see more outstanding results when they sit their Leaving Certificate in two years time.
St. Vincent’s students acheived outstanding success in their results and four students in particular had cause to celebrate as Jane Connolly, Eimear Curtin, Shannon O’Hanlon and Aoife O’Malley acheived an incredible 11 As each at Higher Level.
Principal Deirdre Matthews congratulated all the students and said that overall the results this year were outstanding and a true testament to the hard work and dedication of both the girls and their teachers.
St Louis students were also celebrating great success with students scoring very highly in all subject areas, especially English, maths and Irish.
Labour Senator Mary Moran congratulated Junior Cert students in Louth as they received their results.
“I warmly congratulate students across Louth on their achievements in their Junior Cert exam results”, said Senator Moran. “Students, teachers and parents all put in a huge amount of work throughout the Junior Cycle, and I want to acknowledge in particular the support and guidance that teachers have given their students over the past three years.
“I am delighted to see that results in maths and science improved again this year, with more students taking up higher level science and technology.
“Schools are to be really commended for encouraging students to take on the challenge of higher level subjects.
“I wish every local student well in their future studies, and urge them to celebrate their results safely and sensibly in the days ahead.”
Applications for review of examination results can be made through the candidate’s school, should be received by the State Examinations Commission no later than 5pm on Friday, 26 September.
The fee for this service is €32 per subject which will be refunded in the event that a result is upgraded.
Applications are accepted only from a school authority which must confirm that the result obtained is at variance with the result expected.
It is planned to post the results of the appeals in the week ending 7th November.
