Junior Cert Exam Results Are Out!


In June primary scholars all over the country sat for the Junior Certificate Examination. The results for 2016 were released today and Education Minister Richard Bruton congratulated students, parents and teachers.

This year 60,247 students were enrolled for the Junior Cert Exams, 1.2% more than in 2015.

“The wait between June and now has no doubt been long for you and your families, but I hope that the results today reflect the hard work you have put into your studies. The Junior Certificate marks an important milestone in every student’s second level education.

For most, it represents their first experience of the formal examination process. The results this year are generally in keeping with previous years,” the Minister said today.

This year results will be delivered as previous years, but starting next year 2017 students will receive the Junior Cycle Profile of Achievement, with English being the first syllabus to be assessed under the new Framework.
