There was good news for thousands of hopefuls today as over 60,000 students received the results of their Leaving Certificate exams this morning.
According to the Department of Education there was more optimism amongst students as there was a rise in the number of students taking exams at a Higher Level.
It is understood 10% of students chose to undertake the Irish Higher Level paper, whilst those taking higher level Maths rose by 8% as did English which seen an increase of 6%.
The latest change of approach by students comes as many believe they would receive a better outcome in the higher level paper which in turn has led to a fall in the proportion of students receiving higher marks at Ordinary Level.
