On the day of their results, the Irish Second-level Students’ Union (ISSU) wishes all those receiving their Junior Certificate results today the very best of luck. However, the ISSU appeals to students to be responsible and mindful to others in their celebrations.


Results this year are broadly in line with previous years, and we are encouraged to see an increase in the proportion of students opting for higher level in core subjects such as English, Irish and Maths.


The ISSU is encouraging all students to enjoy celebrating their well-deserved results, but to stay safe and do so responsibly.


ISSU Education Officer, Brendan Power said: “Getting their Junior Certificate results is a landmark in most young people’s lives and I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all students on their hard-earned results.  It is heartening that there has been an increase in the proportion of students taking core subjects at higher level, and I hope that this trend will continue in future years”.


ISSU President, Dylan Grace said: “While many people are currently discussing the new Junior Cycle syllabus, it is important that we all take a moment to congratulate all students of what will soon be the “old” Junior Cert on the three years of hard work and effort which has hopefully been rewarded with today’s results”.
