More talks are taking place today to discuss alternative plans for this year’s Junior and Leaving Certs.

The Department of Education is meeting a range of stakeholders, including principals, teachers and students.

The Irish Second-Level Students Union wants clarity by February 10th on whether the exams will go ahead as planned.

President Reuban Murray is calling for a change in format, with no clarity on when schools will reopen, and says a decision needs to be made urgently.
