Registration for this year's postponed Leaving Certificate examinations will open next Monday, 28 September, at 9am.

The exams are due to begin on 16 November and run during evenings and weekends.

Any student who had previously registered for this year's exams - prior to the introduction of the calculated grades process - is eligible to sit the November tests.

Minister for Education Norma Foley told the Seanad that students can enter "in any or all" of their subjects.

She said the logistical details of the exams would be finalised by the State Examinations Commission when the number of candidates who wish to sit them is known.

She said a circular would be issued shortly with more details.

Students are eligible to sit the exams whether or not they received calculated grades.

Ms Foley said that students could register for the exams online via the calculated grades portal.
