    Hi,

    I'm just trying to do my application for uni in Republic of Ireland on the CAO website and I'm a bit confused... I'm applying as a Scottish school leaver and am I right in thinking you have to do no personal statement, references, or detailed information about subjects/grades for exams???????? I've applied already through UCAS and everything is sooo different between the two forms!!!

    I'm afraid we aren't familiar with the CAO system. I'd suggest that you check here as it looks to me as though you would be classed as a 'non-standard' applicant and there appear to be specific documentary requirements to fulfil as a result. If the video and/or the FAQ pages can't help you, you'll need to contact them directly. I assume you have seen this?

    If the form doesn't give you a space to write a PS or to name your referee, it may be that the individual unis do that instead. In the US, you apply to unis individually and have to write a PS for each one :eek:
