IT’S THE MORNING after the night before for nearly 57,000 young women and men, newly-armed with the three digits that they will be asked to provide in every conversation for the next few months.

Whether elated, disappointed, or ready to appeal their Leaving Cert results, the next stage for almost everyone is dealing with the CAO offer and acceptance process.
