Students who sat the leaving cert exams can now view their results online.

The examinations were made available to all students who wished to sit them after over 60,000 students received Calculated Grades last September.

Over 2000 students decided to sit the papers in November.

Half of them received a higher result than their calculated grade in one or more subjects.

The State Examinations Commission says overall almost 40 per cent of grades in the written papers were higher.

Any student who changes their third level course as a result of improved Leaving Cert grade won't be financially penalised.

General secretary of the Teachers Union of Ireland, Michael Gillespie, says that it's vital that all aspects of the exam take place this year - and not just the written papers:

He believes "The Leaving cert now is a multi-faceted exam with orals, practical work, project work. The exams are a much wider breadth of knowledge."
