The Minister for Education and Skills, Richard Bruton T.D, congratulated over 61,000 (61,654) students on receiving their provisional Junior Certificate/Cycle results today.

English results show a slight increase in the numbers achieving an honours grade. The old-style "A, B, C" etc grading system is being replaced by one which uses the grades "Distinction, Higher Merit, Merit, Achieved, Partially Achieved and Not Graded".

"I would like to wish all students receiving their results this morning the very best of luck". This year is the first of results with the new English curriculum and marking system. As always, the event will be free of alcohol and drugs.
