order of preference / CAO

Posted by Francis O' Toole on February 1, 2017


Thousands of students around the country are now in the process of filling out that all-important CAO application in time for the 1st February deadline, in the hope of securing a college place for September.

One of the many questions students and their parents typically have each year concerns the order of preference when listing course choices the CAO application. It is really important to order your course preferences correctly. It will prevent much frustration and disappointment when it comes to offers time.

Order of preference

In a nutshell, in August 2017, when the first round of CAO offers are issued, each applicant receives the highest course they have listed in their order of preference, for which they have achieved all entry requirements and are above the points cut-off level.

Find out more about the points history of courses using the detailed information in the CourseFinder.
