Leaving Cert

Straight-A student to auction notes on eBay

Co. Clare student to sell notes for college funds.

CILLIAN FAHY, A STRAIGHT-A Leaving Cert student, has put all of his exam notes for sale on eBay.

The starting price for the notes is €40, but could go up if there is a bidding war before the auction closes on the 31st of August.

Fahy is selling notes for seven different Leaving Cert subjects, each of which he received an A grade in. The 18-year-old believes that anyone who buys the notes, most of which he hand-wrote himself, and uses them properly will get an A.

These notes were the only notes I used for my Leaving Certificate. If they can gain me an A grade then it can do the same for you.

These notes are well laid out and of high quality. They are exactly what you need to know for the exam. Many are hand written and some are typed out.

Fahy will begin studying English Literature and Mathematics in Trinity College in September. According to his eBay pages, the reason for selling his notes is to help him fund his education:

Faced with the difficulty of finding money for third level education I have decided to sell all my notes which I have collected over the past two years of my Leaving Certificate. So when you bid on this item not only do you know you’ll be buying high quality A Grade Notes but you will also be helping a student to find money for college.

Selling notes online is not a new phenomenon. is a site where college students can sell their notes to others. The site claims their users have earned over $10,700 this year.
