On August 13th students from the class of 2019 returned to Scoil Mhuire to receive their Leaving Certificate results. Our students once again continued our proud tradition of producing outstanding results. Students were graded under the system, H1 – H8 at higher level and O1 – O8 at ordinary level.
These results ensure that students continued in further education with the majority of students securing their course of choice. Students this year received results in an impressive range of 21 subjects as well as LCVP. 35% of students took the higher level maths examination with all securing the bonus 25 points. 17% of Scoil Mhuire students secured in excess of 500 points, substantially better the national figure.
The percentage of students who gained more than 400 points stands at almost 44% while 63% of students achieved over 350 points. Congratulations and well done to students, parents and teachers on this super achievement.
In particular congratulations to Lisa Finn who secured the maximum 625 points, a wonderful achievement from a dedicated student.
An analysis of Leaving Certificate results from 2015 to 2019 highlights that almost 1 in every five Scoil Mhuire students (19%) secured more than 500 points. Over half of all students (51%) scored more than 400 points while 68% scored more than 350 points. These figures are well in excess of national figures and reflect the consistent hard work and dedication of students and teachers. Well done to all.
