A contingency plan is needed for Leaving Cert students in extreme circumstances

A contingency plan is needed for Leaving Cert students in extreme circumstances

I want the department of education to realise that students should not be forced to sit their leaving certificate if an extreme unforseen circumstance occurred (e.g bereavement, pregnancy, serious illness etc). There should be a contingency plan in place to facilitate these students.

Why is this important?

Many students across Ireland face this problem every year. From family issues or death to other difficulties which can affect one's over all result and even some people's futures. The Department of Education and the SEC need to realise this and take action to facilitate every student.
