TOMORROW MORNING WILL see thousands of students across Ireland finding out if they have gotten into their university of choice.

The CAO points system faces annual criticism for promoting rote learning, and colleges have previously been accused of “artificially inflating” points through niche courses.
So, is it time for a change to the CAO system?
