    I looked up a course at Trinity which I hope to apply to, which has an entry requirement of 520 CAO? What is this converted to A-Levels? Thanks.

    Hey Rolaah, I can honestly say that I have never come across this abbreviation!!!! Our first point of call would be the UCAS tables (https://www.ucas.com/ucas/undergradu.../tariff-tables), or if not, drop them an email for clarification?

    CAO is the Irish university version of UCAS.

    UCAS doesn't have information on CAO points (just as CAO doesn't have UCAS tariff conversions on their site).
