does repeating the leaving cert make you a loser?

Just wait and see how you got on tomorrow, don't worry there are so many options for you, of course you could repeat your LC to gain the necessary points. Another option is to do a PLC (Post Leaving Certificate Course) for the year, this could gain you 400 points if you achieve full marks on course, most colleges are linked to PLC courses. Carlow Institute of Further Education and Training are offering new exciting courses this year in the Post Leaving Certificate area, such as a new technology/business "Office Informatics" courses http://www.carlowife.ie/office-informatics.aspx Which is also advertised with other courses on the FIT website: http://fit.ie/etb_course/carlow-cfe-office-informatics/ If you really have not made up your mind what career area you like to proceed to, after your Leaving Certificate results come out tomorrow, this might be an option. It also is a good way to get a taster for different career areas. Carlow IFE also offer repeat Leaving Certificate in all subjects, just take a look at the PDF current brochure on-line for all FE courses on offer: http://www.carlowife.ie/…/Us…/Files/CIFE-Prospectus-2016.pdf To apply for courses please use web link: http://www.carlowife.ie/apply.aspx Hope this is of assistance to you, remember you have soooo many options!

If you are looking for in excess of 400 points, then repeating looks like a good option a lot of Further Education Colleges offer Repeat Leaving certificate courses. A lot of students repeat to get their chosen college course.
