New point systems
Maggiemoo82 The Leaving Cert — 21/06/17 6

Hiya I really don't understand this new point systen for 2017 the course i want is 430 (home ec teaching in angleas) but due to the new points system I'll realistically only get 419. I was wondering since its harder to get higher points will the points for courses go down. Thanks xxx

I was wondering the same thing but its actually do with the amount of people who apply for the course and the amount of places available. I need 430 as well for St. Angela's are you doing it with irish ?? :)

As Olivia said it's due to demand for the course so we all just have to wait and see in August. I actually didn't think there was that much of a difference but points you'll get in the new system and old system. In my opinion nothing will change too much, it was designed so there wouldn't be a lot of change but you never know
