DGS Careers Bulletin – January 2017

CAO picks up a pace this month with the Application deadline falling on Wednesday 1st February. Once again all students are encouraged to avail of the discounted application deadline (20th January) €25, rather than having to pay €40 after this date and up to 1st February.

Students applying to CAO and availing of the DARE and/or HEAR Schemes should note the application criteria and deadlines for providing supporting documentation. A note also to students applying to Restricted courses including Medicine, Art & Design and Music. These courses must be included in your choices by 1st February deadline. Visit www.cao.ie

Students applying to NUI Universities are reminded to apply for their NUI Irish and Third Language exemptions, if they meet the specified criteria. Visit www.nui.ie for details of entry requirements and exemption application forms.

Mock Exams
With mock exams commencing for 3rd & 6th Year students, within the next three weeks, it is important that these exam students draft and follow a detailed study plan. Some of the techniques that both groups of students covered when completing the Student Enrichment Study Skills Workshops run in the school should be put into practice. The mock exam timetable will be made available to students very soon.
