Pressure is mounting on the Government to clarify when this year's leaving cert results will be issued.

It emerged yesterday that the usual mid-August date is likely to be delayed because of pledges that this year's exams won't be graded any lower than last years, while provision is also being made to hold a deferred sitting of tests in the event some students are affected by covid during the initial run.

However Joseph Ryan - CEO of the Technological Higher Education Association - says any delays will have a knock on effect for the third level academic year and for students who are trying to secure accommodation.
