Dear Leaving Cert Class of 2020,
As you all know by now the Calculated Grade Process for Leaving Cert 2020 has commenced and teachers are busy planning and preparing for their important role in the process.
You have a major role also. Please find attached two very important documents to explain what you MUST DO when the student portal opens tomorrow (Tuesday, May 26th) from 10am. You will need your exam number and PIN number (the first 4 digits of your PPS number) in order to register.
The two documents are as follows.

Extract of letter received from the Dept Education is below:
As you are aware, a decision has been made to offer all Leaving Certificate students due to take examinations this summer a Calculated Grade in each of their subjects.
All students are required to register in order that they have the opportunity to receive Calculated Grades at a later stage. Following registration students following the established Leaving Certificate or Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme are required to confirm the level at which they intended to sit each of their subjects. Students will have the option of confirming the level shown, which reflects what they personally selected in February, or to change to a lower level. It is essential that students confirm their levels at this time so that their schools can complete their task of providing an estimated percentage mark and rank order for each student.
Later on, students will use the portal to opt to receive calculated grades, to access their calculated grades, and to access later stages of the process such as the appeals.
Registration and confirmation of levels on the portal opens at 10 am on Tuesday 26 May and will close at 10 pm on Thursday 28 May. This is a tight timeframe, so you should gather the following information before attempting the registration process:
- your Leaving Certificate examination number
- your Personal Public Service Number (PPS number) as you will need this to create a Personal Identification Number your email address
- your telephone number.
- an email address to which they will have regular access over the coming months
