Outstanding Leaving Cert. Results

The dull and dreary weather was a sharp contrast to the sunny mood at Rockwell College last Wednesday as 89 Leaving Certificate pupils who sat the examinations in June finally received their results. The achievements reflected the high abilities of the pupil cohort of 2017, who performed exceptionally well. In all, over 30% of the Rockwell College pupils achieved 500 points or higher, in comparison to around 9% nationally, and all candidates were delighted with their results. Three of the candidates achieved over 600 points – Roisin McCarthy (Cahir). John Purcell (Cashel) and Cahal Murphy (Clonmel) and in total 12 % of candidates exceeded 550 points.

There were strong grades achieved across all subjects, with grades in Maths, History, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, English, Accounting and Geography well in excess of the national average. The Principal, Audrey O’Byrne and Deputy Principal Michael Doyle praised the success of all the pupils, commenting that the results were evidence of the commitment of the teachers of Rockwell College and strong work ethic demonstrated by the Leaving Certificate pupils across all ranges of ability.
