Official Ireland 2021 University applicant threadWatch
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.
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.
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
Ive apllied for mature entry Dentistry at UCC and Trinity and have an interview this month. Anyone else?
