The number of Leaving Cert students appealing their results has almost doubled this year.
Over 9-thousand students have appealed 17-thousand grades.
That means one in six leaving cert candidates have asked for a paper to be rechecked.
Over 17 thousand papers are being doubled-checked this year, up from just over 9 thousand last year.
Higher level Music is the subject with the biggest increase in appeals - which went from 164 appeals last year, to 479 - an almost 200% increase.
While higher level biology was the most appealed subject, with almost 2100 students requesting rechecks.
The State Examinations Commission believes - despite the surge - it will be able to meet the new earlier deadline for rechecks, which is mid-September.
