The Central Applications Office (CAO) has launched a useful online resource for CAO applicants who are anxiously awaiting round one offers on Monday next.
The four minute video titled, A guide to the CAO Offer and Acceptance process, can be viewed on the CAO website www.cao.ie.
The online video talks applicants through the Offer and Acceptance process and aims to answer some common questions that arise at this time of the year.
Speaking about the video guide, CAO communications officer, Eileen Keleghan, encouraged applicants to share this resource via social media in order to help classmates and friends understand what to expect during the CAO offer season.
She said, “This guide summarises the offer and acceptance process explaining in detail the many different ways that applicants are informed about an offer and also what happens if they have not received an offer.
“We hope that people will share this free resource in order to ensure that applicants avoid some of the common pitfalls experienced at this time of the year; for example, not notifying CAO of any errors or omissions in a Statement of Application Record or not accepting an offer by the reply date” added Ms Keleghan.
Round two offers will be available online on Thursday, August 28 from 6am, and after this offers are issued on a weekly basis until October 10 for any remaining places.
