The Leaving Cert 2020 timetable is now available and can be seen below or downloaded directly from the SEC website. The exams all kick off on June 3rd, 2020 starting with English Paper 1 as usual at 9:30am. The inaugural Physical Education exam also happens to mark the final Leaving Cert 2020 exam and it takes place on Tuesday, 23rd June, 2020.
Also note that Computer Science written exams aren’t included in the above timetable and they’ll take place a little earlier on 27th May, 2020. The Leaving Cert 2020 timetable also retains the extended 15 day format which was introduced last year for ‘candidate well-being’. Traditionally, the Leaving Cert exam period took place over 13 days but the extra 2 days helps to space out exams over a longer time period and minimise subject clashes. As the number of subjects tends to grow every year, timetables can become hectic for students depending on what optional subjects they’re doing.
