Applicants, parents, and guidance counsellors with questions about completing the HEAR or SIF/DARE form should consult the published handbooks and contact CAO if they cannot find answers to their questions. They will have staff trained in dealing with queries on completing these sections of the form.
Questions on how applicants will be assessed and how offers are to be determined should be directed to the Access and Disability Offices in Higher Education Institutions and not CAO. CAO plays no part in making decisions on admissions.

Leaving Certificate 2020
Leaving aside the exams, I am keenly aware of the disappointment that so many students feel about the way their time in school will finish. However, your time in secondary school, spanning over five years is what really matters. Hopefully, you will be equipped with self-awareness and critical thinking skills that you can carry with you into the real world. There are many historical examples of groundbreaking discoveries and timeless masterpieces that were born during times of adversity including Isaac Newton’s and William Shakespeare’s acclaimed achievements which emerged under quarantine conditions caused by a plague outbreak in the late 16th century!
It is the true excellence of the human spirit and endeavour to find new opportunities, new paths, and certainly to be of use to one another when the going gets tough.
