Leaving Certificate results 2009

Many congratulations to our recent leavers, who achieved outstanding results in the Leaving Certificate results released last week. The overall points average was 445, the highest in the history of the College (full details are on the College site here).

The English results again maintained our very high standards, with 97% of our candidates taking the exam at Higher Level (nationally, 64% do) :-
  • 14% of all our candidates achieved an A at Higher Level (nationally, 6.6% of all candidates achieve this).
  • 31% achieved a B (nationally, 17.4%).
  • 46% achieved a C (nationally, 24.9%).
These results are almost identical to last year's fine performances, with 91% getting an A, B or C at Higher Level (90% last year), compared to 49% nationally.
