Dear Parents,

Following a number of enquiries, we were in contact with the State Examinations Commission yesterday to seek clarification regarding the payment of fees for the Leaving Cert and Junior Cert exams. We received the response below. Please continue to keep encouraging your children to log in daily to their virtual classrooms and stay connected with their  teachers.

Stay safe and well

RE: COVID-19 – Clarification on payment of Examination Fees 2020

The SEC would be grateful if you would bring the following information to the attention of your examination candidates/parents/guardians:

Leaving Certificate Fees: The closing date for payment of the Leaving Cert examination fee is being extended until after the exams are complete and the results has issued.

Junior Certificate/Cycle Fees : Students will not be required to pay an examination fees to the SEC in relation to the 2020 Junior Cycle examinations, the SEC will be issuing a refund to all students who have already paid. There is no need to contact the State Examinations Commission as refunds will be made automatically. Further details will be sent to all schools in the coming days.

Your co-operation is very much appreciated.

Kind Regards

Fees Section
