Think what you’d genuinely like to study

Choose a course that you’ll enjoy. You will be studying a degree programme for 3 to 4 years, and if it’s something that you genuinely find interesting, you will do well.


Don’t get distracted by what others say about exam performance

Frank Costello, DIT’s Head of Admissions and Enrolment Planning, says anxious students shouldn’t base their decisions for the change-of-mind form on what other Leaving Cert students are saying about their exam performance, especially on Twitter and Facebook.
Social media is their form of communication and what is said can be extremely influential, so I’d be concerned there is a viral effect that leads a student to think, ‘I didn’t do well in my exams, I’ll change my mind’,” he said in a recent Sunday Times article on Change of Mind.


Take the time to do some research

Double-check the entry requirements* for your course. In some cases, students may have dropped from a Higher to an Ordinary level paper or decided not to sit a subject without realising this could affect their CAO choices.

* Revised language entry requirements for some Event, Hospitality, Tourism and Leisure Programmes in DIT- DT401, DT406 , DT408, DT411, DT412 and DT413
Second language no longer required for DT407, DT416, DT417,DT432 and DT444
