While social media is full of people telling you that your leaving cert results don't really define you, they definitely shape your third-level education so a lot of students are naturally quite emotional today. Remember that there are a lot of helpful outlets out there if your results have made you anxious for the future. Don't hesitate to reach out.

Predicted results is brand new territory for all of us. And the 2020 predicted LC threw up some strange - though not necessarily negative - results.
Like I’m happy..... but very confused? My best subjects got marked down and my worst got marked up? Don’t understand but I’ll take it #LeavingCert2020

The portal itself was a new experience for loads of us, and took some deciphering.
