Make predicted grades optional for the class of 2021

we have been greatly impacted by the closures last March and we now once again face a month long closure. Some students have had to self-isolate due to being a close contact or having contracted covid. The mental health of students is deteriorating. The list goes on which is the exact reason as to why this must happen. Students shouldn’t be expected to sit a normal exam when nothing about this year has been normal. 
This would include predictive grades being issued sometime in March/April/May so that students who wish to resit the exam in any subject(s) they feel they underachieved in can do so in June if they so wish (Similar to last year). It would also allow for those who wish to sit the leaving cert to sit altered exams in June. This would see all students receive grades and points. This gives ALL students who wish to attend college in August/ September the chance to do so.
