Yeats College students were celebrating another year of outstanding Leaving Certificate success. Two students achieved a phenomenal 600 points joining the 92 students nationwide who were awarded 6A1’s. A further 23 students achieved an amazing 570 points or over. In addition, 38 students scored 550 points or over. The vast majority of our students have now been offered their first choice CAO course.
A record number of students received 7 & 8 A’s in various subjects including the languages, science and practical subjects. The Leaving Cert class of 2011 performed well in Science and Business, which goes against current high failure rates in these subjects.

Fellow student Claire Hanley from Barna was also celebrating a magnificent achievement. Having repeated her Leaving Cert at Yeats College she said: “I wanted to do Veterinary but I didn’t get it last year and came to Yeats College to repeat. I’m delighted with my results and can’t wait to start studying the course I’ve always wanted to do”.
Mature student, Olga Tummon, was also thrilled with her result of 590 points. She repeated her Leaving Certificate at Yeats College in the hope of studying Medicine in NUI, Galway. Speaking about the year, she said: “The year has paid off, I’m ecstatic”.
Congratulating students on results day, Principal of Yeats College Terry Fahy commented: “Our students have worked extremely hard throughout the year and I would like to personally congratulate them on their outstanding results.
