Thousands of Kildare Junior Certs get results today

Kildare's 3,031 Junior Certificate students are getting their results today. In total, over 59,500 students sat the exams. The number in Kildare is the third highest in Ireland, after Dublin and Cork. Results are available at the county's 30 secondary schools today, and online from 4pm this afternoon. Provisional results released suggest that it’s very much a case of recent years  for most students in the three pillar subjects of Irish, English and Maths with little movement seen in the grade trends of students over the three years 2013-2015.
