Compensation Rule for Higher Leaving Certificate Results at Grade E
One Grade E result at Higher Level will be accepted for the purposes of meeting minimum entry requirements provided the applicant has amongst his/her results:
- Three Grade C3 results on Higher Level papers
- One Grade C3 and one Grade B3 on Higher Level papers
The Grade E result will not be counted for points and will not be accepted in any subject which is mandatory at Higher Level.
It could, however, be accepted where a subject is mandatory at Ordinary Grade D3.
