The results of this year’s Junior Certificate examinations will be published on 23rd November, the State Examination Commission has confirmed.
The results are unusually late this year because of examiner shortages which meant that the Leaving Certificate had to be prioritised.
“In most subjects, the number of teachers available to undertake roles as examiners was less than the number required to mark that subject within the normal summer marking window,” the commission said.
“In all subjects, marking continued for an extended period of time in the summer and with many examiners agreeing to take on additional scripts to mark.”
In a number of subjects, marking is still ongoing.
