THE TIME HAS come, folks.

Following on from last Wednesday’s Leaving Cert results, the first round of CAO points for 2018 have been calculated.

From students wondering if they got their first preference course to stressed-out parents considering where to start the accommodation hunt, we predict a lot of nervous people out there this Monday morning.

Students all over the country will be receiving CAO offers by post and online, but if you want to get a headstart on the postman – or compare points across institutions – you can find all of this year’s points right here from Monday at 6am.

These will be updated again on Wednesday August 29th when the Round Two CAO points are released.

We’ll also be live on Facebook from 11am with careers expert Andree Harpur and DCUSU Vice President for Welfare and Equality Aisling Fagan to answer all of your questions about CAO points, Leaving Cert results and prepping for college.

Comment below this article with your questions, email or comment on Facebook once the cameras are rolling.
