Leaving Cert results determine what courses you can go on to study at College/University.
Well done everyone: Ten star students today shared the top spot in this year’s Leaving Certificate results, achieving eight A1s in higher level papers.
Another 39 pupils managed to secure seven A1s, while 92 teenagers will find out they got six A1s.
And some 214 students achieved full marks in five subjects.
Minister for Education Ruairí Quinn said all candidates should be rightly proud of their achievements.
“Today is the culmination of many years of hard work and I hope that your dedication is reflected in the results that you receive today,” he said.
The State Examinations Commission (SEC) revealed the number of high achievers varied from last year - when one teenager got nine A1s, six secured eight, 37 got the top mark in seven papers and 92 were awarded six.
Eleven teenagers got eight A1s and one scooped nine in 2009.
The details of the top students’ schools will be made public later this morning.
