Education Minister Denies Leaving Cert Has Been 'Dumbed Down'

: 08/16/2017 - 11:00

The Education Minister has denied that the Leaving Cert has been dumbed down with the new points system.

Under the new scheme, students don’t fail if they get between 30 and 40 points.

Almost twice the number of pupils got eight H1s – equivalent to full marks, than got 8 A1s last year.
