Question:

197.

Written answers (Question to Education)

The 2019 Appropriation Accounts for my Department contained no contingent liability in respect of issues relating to the Leaving Certificate Calculated Grades process. As the calculated grades model was only introduced in 2020, a decision on the inclusion of a contingent liability in relation to that process would be a matter for consideration in the preparation of the 2020 Appropriation Accounts. A compensation fund has not been established regarding this matter.
