CAO Results and Offer Process

This Wednesday, 17th August is results day! Offers will start on Monday 22nd.

This page has a video guide explaining the CAO offer process - all 6th years should familiarise themselves with this important stage of offers - always accept the first offer as you may be offered something higher on your list in the next round but you also may not get any further offers, and if you haven't accepted anything you may be left with no place at all.

I will be in the school Monday 22nd August from 9.30-11 if there are any queries. Please don't hesitate to contact me at the school or on cbcmonkstownguidance@outlook.com.

There will be a full outline of the results, offers, deferrals and recheck process in the pack with your results on Wednesday, please read this carefully. Best of luck! :-)
