Here is a link to the announcement from the Minister for Education on 10th April 2020 https://www.education.ie/en/Press-Events/Press-Releases/2020-press-releases/PR20-04-10.html
No solution to the State Examinations conundrum was going to be ideal. At least this brings a degree of certainty for students during this challenging time.
In light of the revised schedule that has been announced, students might take a complete break from their studies in this Easter period, so that they can return refreshed and renewed to the learning process.
Jenny Crampton has written a piece for UNICEF Ireland on coping with the exam postponement. Please take the time to read it here https://www.unicef.ie/stories/coping-with-exam-postponement/
We will be working through the operational details of this announcement over the coming weeks and will contact students and families with updates in due course.
