Leaving Certificate Programme

Leaving Certificate is a 2 year programme.

  • Full time commitment required over 2 years.
  • 5th year is very important especially for those hoping to gain entry to high points courses.

Usually a maximum of 7 subjects are taken for the Leaving Certificate.

  • An extra (8th) subject? – need to think very carefully about this as each LC subject is extensive and requires a lot of work. Big jump in standard from J.C.
  • Other subjects could suffer if workload is too great.
  • For points purposes best 6 subjects are counted.
  • LCVP – eligibility based on subjects chosen
