Students are being warned not to accept a CAO choice if they’re not interested in the course.
That’s according to Kerry-based educational consultant, Mary Lucey of Career Ahead.
She says if a student isn’t offered their first choice today, and gets a second or subsequent choice, they should not accept it, if it’s a course they don’t want to pursue.
She says if a student is happy to take up a course that’s not first on their CAO form, they should accept the initial offer today.
She adds they still may be offered their first choice in later CAO rounds.
