Instructions on how to use the Calculated Grades Student Portal.
Dear 6th Year/Parent/Guardian,
The online system, the Calculated Grades Student Portal, available through www.gov.ie/leavingcertificate, will open at 10 am on Tuesday 26 May and will close at 10 pm on Thursday 28 May. (You will find a link to the portal at this address when it goes live tomorrow, it does not take you into the portal.)
During this time, students following the Leaving Certificate programme must register and also confirm their final level for each subject in which they are entered. You can only drop levels, not go up levels.
It is essential that students register on the portal at this time and, as required, confirm their levels. The sooner that this is done, the sooner the Calculated Grades Executive Office can provide us with confirmation of final subject levels for students so that we can complete their task of providing an estimated percentage mark and class 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 appeal procedures. This is a tight time frame, so students need to gather the following information before commencing the registration process;
- their Leaving Certificate examination number
- their Personal Public Service (PPS) number (which they need to create a Personal Identification Number)
- an email address to which they will have regular access over the coming months
- their mobile telephone number.
There is help-desk support available to students by telephone and email. Please note that due to COVID19 restrictions the help-desk phone lines (1800-111135 or 1800-111136) are available on Tuesday 26 May from 12pm and then between 9.00 am and 5 pm each day. Outside of these hours, students can email email@example.com.
If you are unsure of your PPS number or examination number please contact us and we will help. Your Exam number was distributed earlier in the year and you stuck the number on the inside cover of your Student Journal.
We can also assist students who might not have access to a device or a smartphone. Just email us and we will help in any way we can.
Take care and best wishes,
