CAO Checklist

Please see this link for a useful CAO checklist. If you haven't registered yet please register asap and put down your preferred Level 8 and Level 6/7 courses, remember you can change your mind later. It is good practice to put your choices down on your application, it will help you decide what you really want and it will lessen the stress about your choices. Please see Ms. O'Connor if you need help with your application.
