Leaving Certificate 2020 School signoff on estimated mark for a
subject studied outside of the school
The principal or deputy principal should complete this form in any case where:
the school is providing an estimated mark for a student enrolled in the school but taking an additional
subject outside of the school, and
the school is satisfied that there is sufficient evidence available to them to stand over the estimated mark
being provided.
If the second condition above is not met, complete Form D instead.
In order for the second condition above to be met, the student’s learning has to have been guided by and
overseen by a suitable tutor. This tutor will have completed Form A and, if they have been tutoring more than
one student from the same school, Form B. The school principal or deputy principal will have liaised with the
tutor both before the completion of those forms and after receiving them from the tutor and examining them.
Read the two documents A Guide to Calculated Grades for Leaving Certificate Students 2020 and Guide to
Schools on Providing Estimated Percentage Marks and Rank Orderings for further details before completing
this form.
Do not divulge the estimated marks or rank orders to the students or discuss the assessment of their likely
performance with them in any way.
