It's that time of year again and this CAO year is unlike any other...

Filling out the CAO form can often be a daunting and stressful experience, never mind when you throw the Leaving Cert and a pandemic into the mix. There can be a lot of confusion about the CAO and 6th years every year have lots of questions about what they have to do.
What courses should I put down and in what order? When can I make changes to my form? How do points go up and down?
The CAO has a big say in what you do with yourself after the Leaving Cert so we're here to help you make the most informed decision possible.

To answer these questions, Eimear and Nessa turned to Donnchadh O'Mahony from Leaving Cert Guidance, who is an experienced career guidance counsellor and an expert in the CAO.
