The Leaving Cert will start on July 29

It has been confirmed this evening by Education Minister Joe McHugh that the Leaving Certificate exams will start on Wednesday, July 29.

RTÉ is reporting that Minister McHugh has been speaking on the matter in the Dáil this evening.

He said that details about the format and timetabling of the exams will be released in the first week of June.

It was thought then that the postponed exam would take place in August. However, this evening, Minister McHugh has confirmed Wednesday, July 29 as the start date.
