09 Mar State Examinations Commission Self-Service Candidate Portal
Dear 6th Years,
Please see the latest information regarding the Candidate Self-service Portal, Information for students, parents and guardians and a Before You Start Guide.
PLEASE NOTE STATE EXAMINATIONS GUIDANCE:
The Candidate portal will open at 12 Noon on Wednesday 10 March and close at 6 pm on Tuesday 16 March.
The Leaving Certificate Candidate Self Service Portal (CSSP) can be accessed at www.examinations.ie or www.gov.ie/LeavingCertificate.
Click on ‘Leaving Certificate Candidate Self Service Portal (CSSP) 2021’.
To assist Candidates the SEC has prepared a step by step ‘Before You Start Guide’ which is attached, and we are requesting your assistance in ensuring all candidates have read this Guide and the important information before they commence the registration process on the Candidate Self Service Portal.
The ‘Before you Start Guide’ updates the information provided in earlier correspondence regarding candidates confirming that they want to sit examinations after the 16 March.
Note please that it will be possible for candidates to update their choices at the end of April/early May to include indicating that they want to take an examination in a subject which they had opted out of taking.
However, there are limitations on this choice as by the time the portal reopens candidates will have lost the opportunity to take any of the related assessment components in multi-component subjects.
Please see attached, Leaving Certificate Short Information For Students, Parents and Guardians.
