        Bonus Points for Higher Level Mathematics:

        Any student who achieves a grade H6 or higher in higher level maths will earn an extra 25 points in their
        Leaving Certificate.  To calculate your points: FIRST add 25 points to the points achieved for your maths
        result, THEN select your best 6 subjects.  Eg if you get a grade H5 (56 points) in higher maths, add 25
        points giving you a total of 81 points.

        Foundation Level Maths is recognised by many colleges for matriculation purposes but not for points.  A
        small number of courses allow points for Foundation Level Maths.
        Further information is available from college websites.

        New for 2017:  Any student who gets a H7 (30-39%) in their Leaving Cert will now receive 37 CAO points.
        Please note that bonus Points for Higher Level Maths cannot be added to a H7 grade in Maths.
