Please note important information regarding the Semester 2 exam results:

1) The results for the Semester 2 exams/alternate assessments will be released online at 2pm Tuesday 16th June.

2) Typically, students who have outstanding fees on their account are prevented from accessing their exam results. To mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, this restriction has been suspended for the 2019/20 Semester 2 exam results. All students will be able to access their results, regardless of whether they have outstanding fees or not.

3) Students will also receive an emailed reminder of their PIN to access results. This email will also have contact details for staff who can assist with PIN resets if necessary.

4) Students who deferred Semester 2 assessments, or who are required to repeat any exams/assessments, must apply to sit supplemental exams/assessments scheduled for August 2020. Typically, there is a charge of €100 to sit the August exams. To mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, this charge has been suspended for the 2019/20 supplemental exam session. Thus, there is no charge to sit the August 2020 exams/assessments. The closing date for students to apply for Autumn assessments is Friday 17th July 2020 at 5pm.

5) Following the release of the exam results, students may still avail of the opportunity to request a recheck/review of their exams/assessments, as in previous years. The deadline for requesting a review/recheck is 10am Wednesday 17th June. The normal review/recheck procedures will apply.

6) Exam script viewing will not be available for either Semester 1 or Semester 2 exams/assessments, due to COVID-19 restrictions.
