The vast majority of students want to be given the option to choose between a Leaving Cert exam and Calculated Grades.
That's according to the Irish-Second Level Students’ Union (ISSU) who have published a report on the State Examinations 2021 and the reopening of schools.
The survey found that over 81% of respondents want a choice between Calculated Grades or sitting in-person exams in June.
The survey had over 20,000 responses, and involved a private webinar with over 250 representatives of 480 ISSU member schools.
Erris based Sinn Fein Deputy Rose Conway-Walsh says there is a deep concern around what shape the leaving cert exam is going to take this year.
Deputy Conway-Walsh is urging the Education Minister to make a decision soon and offer students the choice between calculated grades & a sitting in-person exam.
