Leaving Certificate 2013 is drawing to a close and students are now looking forward to finishing their examinations and thinking ahead to what they have planned for the summer.
Some students have holidays planned for immediately after their exams, others have decided to go to America on J1 Visas.
Whatever students have decided, they should ensure that they have their CAO Change of Mind form submitted before
they leave. Students have until 1 July at 5.15pm to change their CAO course choices as many times as they wish, free of charge.
It is advisable that students take time out to consider their CAO choices and ensure that they are happy with same. If you have your heart set on a career but feel you will not get the adequate points for same, do not lose hope. Do not turn your back on your choice because of points. Students should understand that no matter what they wish to study, there are back doors and avenues available at reduced points that will get you there in the end.
