Written answers (Question to Minister for Education and Skills)

The State Examinations Commission has statutory responsibility for operational matters relating to the certificate examinations.

I wish to inform the Deputy that statistics in relation to the Leaving Certificate examinations (2000-2011) including the number of school leavers who completed the Leaving Certificate can be downloaded from State Examinations Commission website:- www.examinations.ie/statistics. Data on the 2012 examination and the number of entrants will not be available until mid-august.
