This year's Leaving Cert students have received the best results on record, with average grade inflation of 4.4% after the calculated grading system was used.

CAO points will be driven up as a result, but there are concerns that those who sat the Leaving Cert in 2019 and are competing for college places this year will find themselves at a disadvantage.

Liz Daly, whose daughter took a year out after her Leaving Cert and is now applying for college, is worried that she may not get the course she wants. She is looking forĀ logic and fairness to be applied to cases like her daughter's.

Liz was joined on the show by guidance counsellorĀ Betty McLoughlin and Brian Gill, head of Callan Tansey's Commercial Litigation Department and Employment Law, to discuss the situation.
