Leaving Cert Exam Portal

Dear Parent /Student

The State Examinations Commission (SEC) has introduced a facility to allow Leaving Certificate candidates to confirm their subject and level entry details online through the Candidate Self Service Portal, and to indicate whether they want to take the examinations, or to receive SEC Accredited Grades, or both.


The Candidate Self Service Portal (CSSP) is a service provided by the State Examinations Commission (SEC) and the Department of Education for 6th year candidates entered for the 2021 Leaving Certificate.

The Candidate portal will open at 12 Noon on Wednesday 10 March and close at 6 pm on Tuesday 16 March. 

The Leaving Certificate Candidate Self Service Portal (CSSP) can be accessed at https://www.examinations.ie/cssp/2021 or www.gov.ie/LeavingCertificate.

To register, candidates need their exam number, PPS number, a mobile phone number and their email address.

Please note that it will be possible for candidates to update their choices at the end of April/early May
