Reasonable Accommodations

This Leaving Certificate Computer Science specification requires that students engage with practical applications of computational thinking on an ongoing basis throughout the course. In addition, the assessment involves a coursework element, which accounts for 30% of the total marks awarded. This emphasis on practical applications may have implications for students with physical/medical/sensory and/or specific learning difficulties. In this context, the scheme of Reasonable Accommodations, operated by the State Examinations Commission, is designed to assist candidates in the Leaving Certificate who have physical/medical/sensory and/or specific learning difficulties. In considering the course, it is recommended that any student with a disability should contact the State Examinations Commission beforehand to find out if any accommodations can be made.
