The uncertainty surrounding this year's Leaving Cert exams lingers on, as Education stakeholders have this afternoon discussed alternative assessment models.
The Department of Education hosted a sixth meeting with a range of stakeholders today as part of planning for the exams.
Representatives of students, parents, teachers, the State Examinations Commission and the Department took part.
In a statement, the Department says "The group continued its discussions on the practicalities of holding the Leaving Certificate examinations, given the constraints of social distancing and other measures that may be required, based on the available medical advice."
The exams are currently scheduled to start at the end of July, but are subject to public health advice.
A Department spokesperson says a number of backup options are being considered, with predicted grading currently the most likely Plan B.
