  • Each grade represents CAO points – Click here to read how many CAO points each grade gets.
  • Another Useful Tool is the CAO Points Calculator from the Careersportal.
  • Maths Bonus Points: The bonus points are included in the overall points calculation only when Mathematics is one of the applicant’s best six subjects following the addition of the bonus.
  • One sitting only of the Leaving Certificate Examination will be counted for points purposes.
  • Universities and Colleges within the CAO system offer places to the students with the highest points first – IF these students have put this course as their highest choice!
