I've also applied to Trinity but I'm not sure whether they'll count my October exam grade towards the CAO points because apparently they have to be in the same sitting and I only sat one subject in October while the other two I kept the CAGs

I'm thinking of applying trinity, however, in their entry requirements they say they require a foreign language gcse which I do not have. Does this mean that I'm ineligible to apply and there's no point? Or are they not strict on this requirement.

Unfortunately I think it is strict. If you have Latin or Greek I think it also counts? You could always just try and self teach yourself a language GCSE? You only really need to pass to meet the requirements don't need a 9

What counts as a pass?
Would a 1 count as a pass?

Because I'd be starting from near scratch and would only have like a month to learn?

Hi, I applied to UCC from England. I don't remember being asked to 'briefly describe the examinations' but I would imagine that means outline what kind of exams you took (you mention German Abitur), what subjects they were in, and the year you took them. I don't know if the German Abitur is the equivalent of GCSEs (Irish Junior Cert) or A Levels (Irish Leaving Cert), but you should mention all public exams you have taken.

When submitting certificates, you should get a photocopy of each certificate, send this to your school, and get them to sign and stamp it to prove these are accurate results (and that you haven't make them up). You then need to write your full name and CAO number at the top of each piece of paper. This means you keep the original certificates and you send the photocopies to CAO. CAO keep your photocopied versions, which is why they ask for photocopies and not the real thing.

I've applied through CAO twice (2021 and 2020 entry), so have a good understanding of how the system works and am happy to answer any other questions you have.
Hi, hope you don't mind me asking questions regarding medicine entry 2022 as I will need to take a gap year ( 2021 is a failure to me sadly ). I'm also a pupil from England but only studying 3 A levels with EPQ, I do have AS & A level in foreign language ( Chinese ), achieved in 2017 & 2018 so not sure if they count as points. With my 3 A levels ( 1 of them is Maths ) and EPQ, I do wonder if I qualify for the minimum requirement.
I have only recently started looking up for medical schools in Ireland so not having a lot of background knowledge on the difference between each medical schools. Would you mind sharing your thoughts ?. Do I need to apply strategically in order to maximum chances of getting in , like we do for UCAS or basically put them in the order of own preferences? Thanks

Hey, I'm an EU student and I'm going to apply for medicine in TCD next year. Does anyone know whether it matters which subjects on the school-leaving certificate are scored the highest? On the website it's stated that the first four subjects will be counted towards the CAO points and it'll be probably higher level Biology, Chemistry, English and German in my case. I'm also taking higher level Maths but it's highly unlikely that I'll have a proper score, so I was wondering whether they will look down on my application if my CAO points come from languages rather than Maths.
