There are some trends emerging from the 2016 results thus far.

Minister for Education Richard Bruton said this morning that he was pleased with the results of Leaving Ceritficate 2016.

"This is an important milestone and can be a time of great celebration and indeed relief for students and their families as the results become available. I am happy to see that the results and trends are on a par with previous years".

58,466 students sat the Leaving Certificate this year, which is an increase from 2015 at 57,929. Some are concerned this rise will add to the pressures of securing a college position and accommodation.

The percentage of A1s is down 4% this year, with six students earning A1s across the country.

28% of students took Honours Maths this year (up from 15.8% in 2011) while students taking Science subjects are up (20% in Physics & 11.4% in Chemistry from 2013).

Don't panic!

Speaking on RTÉ's Morning Ireland, President of the Institute of Guidance Counsellors Betty McLaughlin advised students who were disappointed with their results not to panic, and to seek out advice from their guidance councilor on their options.
