Students who received calculated grades under this year's Leaving Certificate process will be able to see the class ranking their teacher gave them from next Monday.  

The Department of Education says it is making the information available to students through the calculated grades online portal after receiving legal advice on the issue. 

Students have already seen the marks their teachers awarded them. However, teacher trade unions had objected to the making available of class ranking information.

They said their members had understood that such information would not be made available to students. 

Under the calculated grades system teachers awarded estimated marks to their students, and also ranked them in order of expected achievement.

This information was then fed into a national standardisation process. While the mark a teacher awarded could be changed by standardisation, the ranking given to a student could not be.  

In relation to appeals that were lodged against this year's results the Department has yet to announce a date by which they will be completed.
