Students will receive a VS report with final result for each subject after May 29th on VS WARE

A more detailed School Certificate will be issued in Autumn 2020 outlining your daughter’s participation and achievements in other areas of learning including the Wellbeing programme
A State certificate will also be issued by DES

The Junior Cycle will take the following weighting
