    E in maths 123rachael5

    I failed OL maths in my Leaving cert( got an E) but I got more than enough points to get into the course I want, the entry requirements says mathematics but dosent say a grade, could I possibly still get in? Will I get any offers on Monday? Any advise please

      Are you sure there's no grade? If there's no grade I don't see how you wouldn't get in.

      Normally I see that if you NEED maths but it's not a maths based course the minimum grade is a D3.

      Six Leaving Certificate subjects, including English or Irish and Mathematics with:

      at least grade C3 in one Higher Level paper together with at least grade D3 in five Ordinary Level papers.- that's the entry requirements, thanks Dylan98

      Most college do a matriculation (hope I spelt that right) exam which means if you got the points but not the grade you can do the exam and if you pass you then can get in. And ^that means you need to pass maths^

      Definitely get your scripts from the examination, they are sent to your school with marking schemes.

      Get your teacher to view them with you, it might be a case of marks not being added, sections left out etc., this could have happened, well worth viewing scripts. You will get information on times from your school to view them. It costs nothing, if you find a mistake then appeal the result, this will cost money, but well worth it. You could also Repeat your LC, this is another option for you, look at my previous post.
