New grading system and CAO points structure

Leaving Cert results

The Leaving Cert results are out tomorrow! This year sees big changes to how Irish students calculate their CAO points. The system has been changed for the first time in 25 years, with a new grading system and CAO points structure coming into effect.

The graphic below shows how this new system will work. A useful CAO 2017 points calculator is also available on the CAO website, which can help students to calculate their score.

Wishing everyone receiving their results tomorrow the very best of luck!
