Hi
I don't understand: we need to send some documents to CAO but do we need to send our grades from this years or just the grades of our qualification (e.g. A levels...) ?

I've just sent my documents off to CAO
We send the certificates of any qualifications that we've received so far. So I've sent off my GCSE and AS-level certificates. They will receive my A-level results in the summer.
Has this helped? Message me if you have any more questions!

P.S make sure you write your name and CAO number at the top of each sheet, and get your school to stamp the bottom of each sheet!
Also, if you want to make sure they've received the documents, include a stamped postcard alongside the documents with your address on it- they will write on it that they've received it and send it back to you.

The whole 'stamped postcard' thing is a bit useless - I'm Scottish so have no access to Irish stamps!!

What courses did you guys apply to? I didn't realise my first choice course is actually 4 years so I'm actually hoping I'll get my second instead! Oops

I've applied for general nursing, my top 5 options were UCD, DCU, 2 courses at Trinity and Galway-Mayo
What have you applied for??
Oh I know, it sucks that most courses are 4 years! We're just so used to the 3 year system aren't we...
I'm pretty sure there's a 'change of mind facility ' thing that opens in May or June?? So you could change your options then! I know I want to switch from DCU as my second option to my fourth option and have the Trinity courses in second and third, so I'll be using the 'change of mind' thing then!

English and Film at Trinity and UCD, also Galway and Cork but they don't do the course I want - no harm in putting them down though

I've been doing so much sudden research the past few days because wasn't really thinking of Ireland as an option until recently - but I think it would be an interesting experience!

Was 100% going to go with UCD if I got it but after looking into it people are referring to it as a 'commuter school' and saying it's not that good for socialising - which is like the opposite of what I want so ahh stressed.

Good luck with your application! x

If it’s not within the ten days do they accept it ????
