There will be nerves, sweat and maybe a few tears later as over 60 thousand students get their Leaving Cert results shortly.
The results will be issued online through the Candidate Self Service portal from 10 o'clock this morning.
Students will also be able to receive their results in-person through their school.
Education Minister Norma Foley says it's a major milestone:
"I'd like to congratulate them and acknowledge the last few years have not been easy for them."
"But this wonderful cohort of students have met every challenge along the way."
"So today is such a significant and happy day for them."
Congratulations to the #LeavingCert Class of 2022 from all of us at Quality and Qualifications Ireland!

Students are being advised to celebrate safely tonight.
Leading HSE psychiatrist Dr.Bobbi Smith has this advice for parents and students.
"Look out for your friends, expect your friends to look out for you."
"Have a plan to get home."
"To parents we'd advise having a conversation with your son or daughter."
"Help them think through the evening and I suppose emphasise to them that you'll be there as a backup should they need assistance."
