Implementation of Bonus Points for Higher Level Mathematics by the Universities, DIT & RCSI

This is the latest news we have received regarding  bonus points for Higher Maths.  You can find out more at:

Points awarded: A bonus of 25 points will be allocated to students who achieve a grade D3 or above in higher level (HL) mathematics.  This means that the maximum cumulative LC points total will increase from 600 to 625 (existing maximum points plus bonus points).

Time scale: The scheme is to be introduced for a four year pilot period commencing leaving certificate 2012 and will be reviewed in 2014.


  • All students presenting HD3 or above in HL mathematics will have 25 points added to their score for mathematics
  • The six highest subject points scores will then be counted to achieve a cumulative points score, as is normal practice
