As evidence of such, s/he must have been exempted from the payment of the Leaving Certificate examination fee. An eligible candidate who meets the following criteria will be considered eligible for this Bursary scheme. All first time candidates at the Leaving Certificate Examination 2018, who obtain at least Grade O6 or a higher grade in at least five subjects from the approved list of subjects, (as set out in the Rules and Programme for Post Primary Schools) will automatically be included as candidates for the award of a bursary.
