Cancel the Leaving Cert of 2021 and add alternatives! The stress and anxiety we go through every single day for this exam which determines our future is terrible for the mental health for 17-19 year olds.

The Leaving Cert students of 2021 is finding it hard to have fresh air, exercise or do activities because of these exams. Life comes before education, without life you wont learn.

We missed 4 months of school and we got 4 months left till the Leaving Certificate. Students voices needs to be heard not kept silent! The Irish government needs to take students voices into consideration and not only use their own thoughts. Theres this virus called Covid-19 going around fi you are not aware?? Wake up and look at your future workers. Stress is not good for health.

Every day these students go through 12 hours study + school shifts and tears for what will happen to them if they dont get their desired courses. UK and other countries cancelled their exams because they got some sort of sense in them! 

I would recommend to put in an alternative for example predictive grades or online continuous assessments by the teachers. 

Like the book "Less stress, more success" is an example of how these things work. Stressing will get you no where. You need to understand the pressure we go through and take students voices into consideration!
