New Leaving Certificate Grading Scale and Revised Common Points Scale (Sept 2015)

It has been agreed to change how the Leaving Certificate examinations are graded, using fewer broader grade bands. The current 14-point grading scale (A1, A2, B1, B2, B3, etc. where the grade bands typically cover 5%) will be replaced by an 8-point scale (based on a grade band 10% wide). This requires a new Common Points Scale.
