Exam Information for 6th Year Students
The Candidate Self Service Portal (CSSP) is a one-stop-shop for a range of online services for Leaving Certificate candidates. The CSSP will be used again for the 2022 Leaving Certificate so that candidates can confirm their examination entry details and access other services such as results and appeals.
The portal will open at 12 noon on Thursday 3 February for candidates to confirm their subject entries and levels. It will remain open for this purpose until 12 noon on Friday 11 February.
During this time Leaving Certificate candidates will be required to register and create their portal account, confirm their subject and level entry details, and add or delete subjects from the records presented to them. Leaving Certificate Applied Year 2 candidates will be required to register and create their account only.
Candidates will not be able to add additional subjects after the portal closes on 11 February.
Access to the Portal
