This information applies to candidates taking the Leaving Certificate and Leaving Certificate Applied Programme only. Junior Certificate candidates do not have this option.
Will I be able to view my scripts this year?
Yes. The Viewing of Marked Scripts process provides Leaving Certificate Candidates with an opportunity to see how the script in question was marked. Each candidate will be allowed to bring one other person with him/her to the viewing session.
Will I have access to my oral and practical marks?
Only the scripts from the written and aural examinations are returned for viewing. However, the results of all examination components including written, oral, aural and practical components are re-marked on appeal.
Is it essential that I view my scripts if I wish to appeal?
No. An appeal application may be made without having viewed the script. However, the viewing facility provides a candidate, who may feel that his/her grade does not fully reflect his/her performance on the day of the examination, with an opportunity to see how the marking scheme was applied to the work.
Can anyone else view my script?
Only if they are accompanying you to the viewing. As the candidate concerned you must first decide whether or not you wish to view a script and then you must be present in person at the viewing centre in order to do so. Your scripts will not be released to any other person even with your permission. You may wish to take particular note of this requirement when making holiday arrangements.
Where can I view my scripts?
Marked scripts will be returned to the examination centre where you sat your examinations.
How do I apply to view scripts?

You must return the completed form to the school by Tuesday 22nd August, 2017. If you are an external candidate, your personalised application form will be sent to you with your results.
