Crosscare Youth Information Service has published its annual guide to ‘what’s next’ after the leaving Cert Results, and its available to download and share.
The 2015 leaving cert results will be released into the in a couple of days – and for many people the next steps are clear. They’ll move on to their chosen further or higher level course, or they are done with education for now and are entering the workplace. For them world will continue to spin on its axis and all is as well as can be expected.
For others however, this is a traumatic time, when the number of points achieved is the all-consuming thought process. Those that haven’t achieved the number of points for their chosen points, or have (in their minds) crashed and burned, turn their thoughts to options – can I re-sit, should I appeal, is there a PLC course that will get me to where I want to be?
Our guide outlines issues like how to read your results, the CAO process, getting papers re-checked, how to accept an offer,deferring your place, options for repeating, and much more. Click here to download our ‘What’s Next 2015’ guide
