Hey i was reading the TCD thread and you were very helpful, thanks!
I am an international, doing a levels, and applying to Medicine at TCD. it says that youd need 739 points. Does that apply for internationals as well? I have AAAA at AS, and A*A*A* at A2's, that plus the 25 extra points for maths gets me to 735 :/
Any help is much appreciated! thanks!
Congratulations then! I'm happy for you.
Ooooh, heritage history, you're not too far away from me then, ish.
I know that feeling. Where are you looking for jobs, what field?
Good to see you're still around.
Hi - Thanks for replying. My AS subjects were Latin, Music, Philosophy and Psychology. At the moment I am continuing to A2 with Latin, Music and Philosophy. I hope to get at least ABB in these subjects at A2. I got a C in Psychology at AS. This would therefore add up to 425. I'm talking to my school about resuming A2 Psychology - however I seem to recall reading somewhere that Music and Psychology may not be acceptable A level subjects for admission to all Irish universities. Do you know if this is the case?
Also since I missed an A in Latin AS by only 1 mark and a B in Philosophy by 2 marks - I was going to re-take a couple of AS papers in January - but having read the admission requirements I don't think that the re-takes would be acceptable for Irish applications - or would they?
I'm also confused about how CAO in Ireland are supposed to get my results. Do you know if UCAS communicate these directly? I'm sure I've read a comment from a student on this forum somewhere saying that this did not happen for him. Also I was under the impression that Irish matriculation results come out before A level results - so perhaps I might miss the first round of offers in any case......?
I've emailed cao and Trinity admissions - but haven't get got any responses so would be very grateful for any insights you are able to give.
I wonder if you can advise an student from English considering applying to university in Ireland? I took 4 subjects at AS (BBCC). I hope to be able to improve on those grades at A2. My school advises me to drop one of the subjects and concentrate on re-taking a couple of the AS papers along with my A2s in order to maximize my grades in 3 subjects for my UCAS application. However I am also looking at applying to Trinity and it would seem that I would be better off continuing with the 4th subject at A2 rather than doing the re-takes. An increase from a C to a B grade at A2 is only worth 20 points - but carrying on with the 4th subject would increase my tariff score in that subject from 50 points for an AS to 100 points for an A2. Also - am I right in thinking that any AS re-takes in my A2 year would not count under the Irish system anyway?
The entrance requirement for the course that I am interested in was only 390 points last year - but was 425 a couple of years ago - even so it looks achievable.
My problem is that my school know nothing about applications to the Republic of Ireland and feel that I should be concentrating on UCAS and are reluctant to let me continue with 4 A Levels to A2 - as they feel that I should be concentrating on re-taking some of my AS papers instead in order to get the maximum possible grades over 3 subjec
would really appreciate if you read my short introduction
Very informative post in the mispronunciation thread. Thanks.
Seriously funny photo selection in the riots thread - nice one!
