There is still time to apply to CAO

I didn't submit a CAO application and now I am regretting it. Am I too late? Guidance Counsellor Aoife Walsh addresses this question among other important CAO matters:

The main deadline for CAO applications (February 1) has passed.

On Thursday (February 5th), the Online facility to amend course choices opens (€10 fee applies).

If any student did not register with the CAO before February 1, and is still interested, it is still possible to do so. Applications can still be made; however, anyone who registers for the first time between now and May 1 will be considered a late applicant.

Those who apply as a late applicant will be unable to apply for restricted entry courses and certain colleges may have further restrictions. However, applicants will be treated equally to others and will not be at any further disadvantage for applying late. Therefore, if students are regretting not submitting an application before now, there is still time to do so.

CAO Late Application details are available here
