Two further days are being been added to the Leaving Certificate written examinations timetable from June 2019.
The additional days allow for new scheduling options intended to minimise clashes for students and promote the wellbeing of students sitting exams.
The revised schedule follows the addition of Politics and Society to the Leaving Certificate examinations timetable in 2018 and it is also being made in anticipation of Physical Education and Computer Science being added in 2020.
The Leaving Certificate examinations written timetable has traditionally been for a 13-day period, starting on the Wednesday after the June bank holiday.
The addition of two more days brings the total examination period to 15 days, with the final date for examination in 2019 being Tuesday, 25 June.
The 2018 timetable had 35 curricular and 18 non-curricular language subjects timetabled during 26 examination sessions over a 13-day period.
The new timetabling arrangements allow for 30 examination sessions over a 15-day period.
No exam has been scheduled for the afternoon of day 15 in the June 2019 timetable. From 2020, this session will be used to facilitate the placement of new examinations.
The SEC has today published the Leaving Certificate timetable for 2019 which is available here:
