State Examinations Candidate Self Service Portal

State Examinations Candidate Self Service Portal

In line with changes required to bring about the earlier issue of results of the Leaving Certificate appeals, the State Examinations Commission (SEC) has developed a Candidate Self Service Portal for Leaving Certificate and Leaving Certificate Applied candidates.

The Candidate Self Service Portal is an extension of the SEC’s online results service and as well as providing access to results online it will also allow you to apply to view scripts, to access component marks, to view your scripts in subjects that are being marked online this year, to make an appeal application and to access your appeal results.
