"This is a very important milestone on a student's educational journey. This is also the beginning of a new chapter on life's journey."

The words of Dr Dan Collins, Head of Student Affairs at CIT, in offering his congratulations on behalf of CIT to students who received their Leaving Certificate results.

Dr Collins pointed out that students have many options as to their next steps, including, he said “pursuing higher and further education, apprenticeship prospects in traditional and ever-increasing new areas, gap years, work, to name a few”.

Dr Collins also said that this year’s Leaving Certificate marks a milestone because a new Common Points Scale and grading system that were introduced.

He advised students to check online with the CAO and Qualifax, both of which have online point calculators that can help calculate points.

Ultimately, he said, students should be proud of themselves, no matter their score and should consider the options now available to them with their guidance counsellors and other trusted figures.

He said: “While it is a momentous occasion for so many, it is also the start of new opportunities for many.”
