For entry to the Cork Institute of Technology, from 2017, the new Leaving Certificate grading system has been implemented.


The new grades range from  H1 - H8 and O1 - O8.  The new grade system and how it corresponds with the pre 2017 system is as follows:


H1/O1 90-100  A1
H2/O2 80<90 A2/B1
H3/O3 70<80 B2/B3
H4/O4 60<70  C1/C2
H5/O5 50<60 C3/D1
H6/O6 40<50 D2/D3
H7/O7  30<40 E
H8/O8 0<30 E/NG


Bonus points for Maths in 2018

As similar to the current scheme, 25 additional points will be awarded for higher level Mathematics at grades H6 and above.
