Inishowen students braced for Leaving Cert results 16.08.16

INISHOWEN Leaving Cert students are bracing themselves for results day tomorrow.
The local teenagers will have smartphones at the ready as they count their points ahead of round one CAO college offers next Monday, August 22.
The Union of Students in Ireland (USI) today advised students to get plenty of rest tonight to reduce their anxiety levels on results day. The union also stressed that there is plenty of help available for people who might feel disappointed wih their results.
"Receiving the Leaving Cert results and CAO offers are two of the most exciting and stressful days young people can experience because five or six years of studying and hard work leads to one day," said USI president Annie Hoey.
Ms Hoey said young people should talk to their career guidance counsellors if they feel disappointed and said services like Childline are also available around the clock on 1800 666 666.
CAO round two offers, meanwhile, will be issued on August 31 with the USI reminding students that "if they don’t get their first choice, to wait and see what they get in the second round".
Ms Hoey said anyone "feeling confused or worried" about their choices should contact the college’s Students’ Union or access office.
The USI also urged people to ring their chosen university's student accommodation office as soon as possible so they have a place to stay during their studies. Further ‘digs’ accommodation is available at homes.usi.ie .
